Fundraising champion Michelle Lewis MBE has pledged her support for Teenage Cancer Trust's Merseyside Appeal.

Michelle, 31, has to date raised more than £1.9 million for various charities.

Michelle is now backing the latest appeal by Teenage Cancer Trust, which aims to raise £500,000 to equip the charity's new facility at Alder Hey Children's Hospital.

Michelle has pledged to raise £20,000 for the appeal.

She kicked off her fundraising by giving a talk at her local rotary club and her next event will be a bucket collection at her local Asda store at Queens Drive in Liverpool on April 25.

Teenage Cancer Trust will also benefit from Michelle's annual variety show, to be held later this year.
