A FUN, family vintage fete is taking place this weekend to raise money for a young boy’s cancer treatment.

The event is taking place this Sunday (July 7) on Memorial Avenue in Shiplake Cross to raise money for 12-year-old Charlie Ilsley from Emmer Green.

Charlie, who took part in Channel 4’s Stand Up To Cancer Campaign last year, has recently been cleared of cancer after undergoing treatment for brain and secondary spinal cancer in Turkey, which cost more than £81,000.

With this treatment now finished and paid for, his family need to raise a further £47,000 for Immunotherapy which will teach Charlie’s immune system to recognise cancer cells and prevent it from returning.

Charlie’s mother, Toni, explained “he has been through so much” and this treatment will be their insurance policy to make sure it doesn’t return.

To fundraise, she has organised Charlie’s Vintage Fete which will host an array of entertainment from 12pm-6pm.

There will be live music from vintage singer Helen Muggeridge and Reading artist Steve Morano.

As well as live performances, there will be lots of fun for all ages, including two bouncy castles, 20 stall holders, glitter and face paint artists, a raffle, fortune teller, body piercing, jewellery and more.

There will also be food, cakes and ice cream vans.

Others have joined in with the fundraising including Jim Duncan who has written a song for Charlie, which is now available to buy with all proceedings going to the family.

Toni said: “I think it is going to be a really fun day.

“Charlie will be there selling his CD.

“It would be nice to see everyone.”

She also thanked everybody for their support.
