Max Louth from Whittlesey, owner of party company Discos2TheMax, hopes to raise £500 for the staff, volunteers and patients impacted by the COVID-19 outbreak.

The 18-year-old has already raised more than £110 for NHS Charities Together and his live show, airing on Twitch.TV, will take place on Saturday, May 2.

He said: “We want to raise money for the NHS to show we support what an amazing job they are doing in dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic.

“We have a goal of £500 as we feel this is a realistic goal for us to achieve as a small business, make sure to join us to raise money and have a good time.”

The stream starts from 4pm when music will be played until 4.30 when Max will start a quiz. The entertainment will run into the night before finishing at midnight.

Max added: “I started doing livestreams on Twitch.TV a few weeks ago in response to the COVID-19 situation and they have been going really well.
