Weʼre raising £600 to help my Uncle Matt

What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


Hi. I'm Martha and I'm 6 years old.

In September 2017, my lovely Uncle Matt, who is just 42, found out that he had cancer in his oesophagus but it is now also in his liver and lymph nodes. The doctors said that there wasn't much that could be done for him but we knew we had to fight for him. We have now raised a lot of money but we need to keep going. Uncle Matt is receiving special medicine from America which some lovely doctors are giving him at Christie's in Manchester.

I decided that as I have lovely long strawberry blonde hair that I would chop it off to give to children who may need it to make a wig. I will be giving my plait to the Princess Trust but I would love to also raise money for my superhero Uncle who I love with all my heart. He has a son, my amazing cousin Seb, who is 11. He needs his Daddy to be around for a very long time.

Can you help?

Thank you so much for reading and I hope you like my bob (although I don't like calling it that!).

Love from Martha xxx
