“I WOULD do anything I could if I was in that position.”

These are the words of a mother who has shown her support for a five-year-old boy battling cancer by organising a fundraising market.

Amber Van Poppel, 37, of German Road, Bramley, has joined the urgent appeal to help the Warner family raise £203,000 to send their son Oliver to Barcelona for experimental antibody treatment.

As previously reported in The Gazette, Oliver Warner, of Farriers Close, Bramley, was diagnosed with high-risk neuroblastoma – a type of cancer that forms in certain types of nerve tissue - in 2016.

He underwent extensive chemotherapy and surgery, before he went into remission, but has since relapsed.

In a bid to support Oliver and his family, the community has organised a whole host of events to raise funds towards the campaign.

Mrs Van Poppel wanted to get involved as her son Jake is the same age as Oliver and they are in the same class at Bramley CofE Primary School.

She said: “I can’t imagine what the family are going through. I would do anything I could if I was in that position.”

Mrs Van Poppel has decided to host a baby and children’s market at the school on December 9, to raise funds.

She added: “I was going through some old stuff and I was just going to sell it on eBay and give the money to the Warners.

“But then I thought there are probably others who may want to do the same, so that is where the idea came from.

The mother-of-two said the event isn’t just about the market as local businesses have got involved and will be setting up a coffee and cake area.

“We just want to get as many people involved as possible and to show the Warners we are here to help them in anyway we can.”

The market will run from 2pm to 4pm with all the money going toward Oliver’s campaign.
