Mighty Max needs YOUR support with charity market

MIGHTY Max is urging YOU to get into the festive spirit by coming along to his Christmas market to help raise money for research into childhood blood cancers.

The four-year-old, of Little Walden Road, will be joined by mum and dad Jodie and Daniel Rowlandson, little sister India and a team of local businesses who are supporting the fundraising effort for the charity Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research at the community centre in Great Chesterford on Saturday.

Max, who is just over halfway through a three-year course of treatment after being diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia in June 2010, started school at St Thomas More in September and has already completed a number of successful fundraising exploits with his family.

The market, organised with Louise Mulhearn and a team of volunteers, will include handmade crafts, Olympic clothing, free leisure centre passes, cakes and a Christmas card design competition and face painting for children.

It follows on from the success of Max’s Market in March, which helped raise �1,500 for the charity, and everyone in the community has been encouraged to turn out for the day to try and eclipse this target.

The event runs from 10am-1pm and entry is a 50p donation on the door.
