Maisie and family back the CLIC Sargent book campaign

Year 6 student Maisie and her family are supporting the ‘Get in Character’ campaign that offers fans the chance to become immortalised in their favourite authors next book.

A pupil in Year 6 and her family are supporting a campaign by CLIC Sargent, a charity fighting tirelessly to stop cancer destroying young lives, which offers fans that chance to become immortalised in their favourite author’s next book.

As featured in last week’s Chronicle and Echo newspaper, the ‘Get in Character’ campaign is being supported by Maisie as the charity aims to raise money to help children fighting cancer. Over 50 authors are taking part in this year’s campaign, including the likes of Alesha Dixon, Lisa Jewell and Nick Spalding, aiming to add to the impressive £35,000 raised since its inception in 2014. Maisie was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia aged just seven years old, but after two and a half years of treatment, and with the support of CLIC Sargent, Maisie is now in remission, back at school and thriving.
