A King’s Lynn estate agent is pulling out all the stops to help raise money for a children’s charity.

Russen and Turner received 33 applications for support after a recent appeal, and chose Reach For A Star which helps
children with life-threatening illnesses.

The team at Russen and Turner will begin fundraising in earnest with an auction starting this weekend.

A painting of ‘Juggling Jim’, a well-known town centre character in King’s Lynn, will be going on the online auction site eBay tomorrow.

Payment for the winning bid will go directly to the PayPal account of the charity and the auction closes on June 30.

Russen and Turner’s Ed Weightman will be joining the Great North Run in September.

Sponsorship forms are available from the company’s High Street offices in Lynn.

Reach For A Star was founded last year by the families of two children who were diagnosed with rare brain tumours; William Lewis, of Gaywood, and Olivia Moore, of North Lynn.

The charity raises money to provide specialist equipment or grants to help families.

“We want to help some of the bravest and strongest children out there to believe in magic. We want to see them smile and we want to help them reach for a star,” said Claire Moore, vice chairman.

A variety of fundraising events are planned by the charity, including a football tournament in August and an 80s prom night in October.
