Fundraiser of the Month
We are delighted to announce that Milla gets our Fundraiser of the Month award for January.
Milla was inspired to raise money for Alder Hey at this year’s Winter Market in Manchester after being treated at Alder Hey when she was little.
“I have been coming to Alder Hey since I was small and I am very grateful for all the help the doctors and nurses have given me. Following an operation in December 2021 I had wanted to do a sponsored walk to raise money for the hospital but unfortunately my mobility has not been good enough so along with my sister we decided to do something else.
“During lock down my sister started to make fudge and sell it to our neighbours and friends so we decided we wanted to make more fudge to raise money for Alder Hey. The organisers of the Winter Market in Manchester agreed to let us have a stall at the Christmas Fair in December and we spent the whole of the week before making and packaging it. We designed how we wanted the stall to look and on the day we sold out, making lots of money for the hospital. Everyone said the fudge was delicious, we had a great time running the stall and we plan to do it again this year.”
We think Milla’s idea was brilliant and certainly hit the sweet spot in Manchester – well done Milla, and thanks to eveyone who supported her, and us, at the Christmas Fair!
