Kiama took James Sullivan’s determination to raise money for research into brain cancer to heart at the first Farmers’ Market of the school holidays, with an enormous crowd turning out on a beautiful winter’s day.

over $1,600 was raised with James’ baked good stall being supplemented by raffles donated by Jade Ross from Little Missy and Moo in Shellharbour, the Novotel in Wollongong and three fresh food hampers of donated goodies from the market stallholders.

James’ cousin Harry O’Brien sang and played, and donated all his busking funds – totalling about $160 – to the fundraiser.

A conservative estimate put the crowd at in excess of 2500 people today at the market.

And a lot of silly beanies were evident on the day.
