Tigers fan Christopher's keepy-ups for Taylor

Leicester Tigers fan Christopher Hollis has been raising money in support of injured Tigers player Taylor Gough setting himself the challenge of completing 1,000 golf keepy-ups in a day.

The twelve-year-old, who is a talented golfer, completed his first challenge back on July 23 with the aim of raising £200. As more people donated, by the end of the month, had completed 11,000 keepy-ups.

As the donations flooded in, Christopher has now raised £1,500 towards helping Tigers back row Taylor Gough who suffered multiple injuries, including a severe spinal injury ahead of the club's return to training earlier in the year.

Christopher's mum Sharan has been friends with the Gough family for more than 40 years and it was hearing his mum break the news to him which inspired Christopher to take on the challenge to help Taylor. 

He also met Taylor during one of Leicester Tigers matchday coaching clinics at Old Newtonians RFC back in May 2019, before the group enjoyed a matchday out at Welford Road.

With a new target of raising £2,000, Christopher is continuing his challenge of 1,000 keepy-ups a day for every donation received. Supporters looking to get behind Christopher and Taylor can donate by following the link below.
