Sean Keefe has raised almost £1,000 for charity

Each year, Sean Keefe, landlord of the Vinyl Tap, raises money for cancer charities.


During the first lockdown, he cycled 666 miles, often virtually, for the Heavy Metal Truants, raising funds to fight cancer and for other causes.

During March, Sean joined ‘Walking Against Cancer’ to raise money for Cancer Research UK.

He said: “I first started doing all this around ten years ago, when we lost both my gran and auntie to cancer.

“I’ve seen good friends doing their best to cope when their child develops cancer, and seen other friends go through the process of fighting the disease, and quite frankly wish I could do more to help.”
