I’m raising money for Max!
Max is a bright, funny and generous 11 year old lad; he’s the son of one of my oldest friends and in the latter part of 2017 he was diagnosed with three forms of brain cancer.
After several months of severe migraines the doctors finally discovered his cancers. He quickly went through a series of operations and is still undergoing daily chemotherapy and radiotherapy to increase his chances of staying well for longer.
Despite his current condition he has so much enthusiasm and interest in those around him, touching the lives of both young and old. Like lots of boys his age he loves to perform, immerses himself in Minecraft and loves animals so much – he will rarely walk past one without saying ‘Hello’.
Max and his family have set up a namesake trust titled “Living to the Max”. The trust will raise money to support other children with cancer and provide financial aid to fulfil some of their dreams. They have lots of great ideas!
I am raising money specifically for Max and his mother, my friend Syb. The funds I raise will enable them to enjoy some quality time together, whether its enjoying dinner together at Max's favourite Italian restaurant or new experiences, like seeing a play or going to the zoo.
In keeping with Max’s attitude, I've decided that the best way to raise this money is to do something that everyone can get enjoyment from.
I’m going to do a Sponsored Silence... For 48hrs.
Mid February. Thursday through to Saturday. At the office and in the pub.
Sponsor me £10 or more and you can add a forfeit for when I inevitable fail during this period.
These will be put into a lucky dip to be pulled out at random. Be inventive, but keep it clean and legal - No nudity. I’m here to succeed but I’m here for your amusement. Just add it in when you donate :-)
You’re welcome to come visit me during this challenge, join me at the pub and try set me off my game and watch the fun of the forfeits unfold!
If you met me for only a moment or have a friend who knows me well, you will know that this challenge will be no small feat, especially when alcohol is involved. I like to voice my opinion and spend most of my days bossing people about. I’m ready to keep my opinions to myself (or at least try) and I invite you to support/challenge me in whatever way you can.

About the fundraiser
London, United Kingdom
I met Syb and her family when I was 5 years old, my childhood is filled with beautiful memories of us all together and I am lucky enough to count them as an extended part of my family still today. This is why I wanted to do something to show my support and bring a smile or two.
