The Walk for Life calendar is now on sale and Amanda has kindly promised to support the charity and donate five euros for each calendar that she sells. This inspired Ethan to help out and he has been selling calendars for Amanda, which means more money goes to the fabulous charity.

Ethan has now run out of calendars to sell, but more will soon be printed and he will be able to carry on selling them.

According to Walk for Life: “Ethan handed over 1,000 euros from the sales of the calendars, 1,000 euros donated by Amanda Oakley (thank you so much Amanda you are a superstar) 50 euros from a lady donated at Amanda’s shop and 120.98 euros in a Walk For Life tin that has been donated by kind people in the shop and Ethan has kindly been putting money in that people had given to him as a gift for selling the calendars – he truly is a special 9yr old.
