Charity boxing match for Max Lally Foundation and Liverpool children’s cancer charity

10 Oct 2017

Local friends, Grahame Walker and Ryan Gibson, from Waterloo in Sefton are taking part in a white collar boxing match. The event, which will take place on October 14 in Fusion Nightclub, is to raise money for the Max Lally Foundation, which was set up following the tragic case of 17 month old Max Lally who died after battling a rare form of cancer.

The Max Lally Foundation raises money for Liverpool CHICS, The Children’s Cancer Support Group based in the North West, who supports families like Max’s who have been affected by children with cancer.

Max Lally was only five weeks old when he was diagnosed with neuroblastoma. He underwent three months of chemotherapy which treated the 8cm tumour, tragically, however, the tumour returned a few months later and Max later sadly passed away.  

So far Grahame has raised over £110 for the cause. The fundraising has been further supported by his employer, local pension administrator, MyCSP, who Max’s auntie, Stephanie Lally, also works for, with a donation of £500.

Grahame Walker said; “I was touched by the story of Max Lally and wanted to do something to help raise money for families like his who are affected by childhood cancer. I am looking to raise as much money as possible for this fantastic local charity by taking part in my first boxing event. I’m really grateful for all the support so far and to MyCSP for their generous donation.”

The MyCSP Community Fund was launched three years ago to support local causes and has so far donated over £40,000 to 85 different fundraising campaigns.
