Charity football match raises more than £2k for Magical Millie fund

First published in News

More than £2,000 has been raised for a four-year-old girl diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumour.

The people of Halstead have come together in support of the family of Millie Brown ever since she was diagnosed with a brain stem tumour last month.

The Richard de Clare pupil is currently undergoing radiotherapy in an attempt to prolong her life.

Regardless of the treatment, she is unlikely to live much longer than a year, sparking the Magical Millie fundraising campaign, which aims to ensure her time left is as happy as possible.

The main goal is to raise about £10,000 to send the family to Disneyland.

On Saturday, Halstead Town Veterans and a Magical Millie Select XI took part in a charity football match at Halstead Town’s Rosemary Lane ground.

Millie herself kicked off the match, which the Magical Millie side won 4-2.

The event raised £2,149.65.
