Steve’s hats for Mylah-Mae

Steve’s niece recently had a baby girl and shortly after her birth, she was given the devastating news that her daughter – Mylah-Mae – has a form of cancer called neuroblastoma – a condition that affects just 100 children in Britain every year. Born in June, Mylah-Mae was found to have a tumour the size of a small melon growing inside of her. She is currently undergoing chemotherapy, which involves a lot of time spent at hospital and a gruelling 120 mile drive each week.

To try to help relieve some of the financial burden, and allow her to focus on the important things (ie her daughter), Steve has decided to try to help out by raising some funds to help with travel costs and time spent away from work. He came up with the idea to start selling woolly hats that he has made on his daughters’ knitting machine.

From an initial target of £300, Steve’s JustGiving fundraising page brought in more than £1,600 within a week. The public interest has been incredible and humbling, with many people donating money. There is a bit of a waiting list for Steve’s hats as he battles with the backlog of orders.
Any donations towards Steve’s woolly hats is gladly received and greatly appreciated, whether it’s big of small. Should you wish to donate, click here to visit Steve’s JustGiving page.

From all of the team:

Well done, Steve – keep knitting!
