Fundraiser of the Month
Congratulations and thank you to Seven-year-old Max Willets from St Helens who made a splash for young patients at Alder Hey.
Inspired to fundraise for Alder Hey, Max set himself a challenge to swim 5km in March. As a new member of St Helens Swimming Club, the target of 200 lengths in the 25m pool was no mean feat for the thoughtful seven-year-old, but Max heroically surpassed his target racking up the 200 lengths by Mother’s Day – 12 days early!
With the support of friends and family, Max raised an impressive £410.00. Max was thrilled with his medal which we presented to him at a cheque presentation, and he very kindly brought in lots of Easter chocolate and sweets for patients too!
Max’s mum, Nicola said:
Thank you for your dedication to the brave young patients who need our care and expertise.
