School kids raise money for charity


Three schoolchildren from Abbott Leigh took on various tasks to raise money for charity.

Rosie Martin, aged six, Grace Dilloway, aged eight, and Charlie Dilloway, aged six, washed cars, cleaned shoes, gardening and even sold raffle tickets to neighbours to raise funds for St Peter's Hospice, in Bristol.

Rosie's aunt, Samantha Harford said altogether the youngsters raised £120.

She said: "They were looking 
for things to do during the holidays and Grace suggested she wanted 
to raise money for charity since her and Charlie's nan had been in a hospice.

"It was a good way for the three of them to meet the neighbours and spend time together during the holidays.

"We helped them with the tasks because you can imagine what it would have been like.

"When they finished the events, they sent a letter to the neighbours they had visited thanking them and telling them how much they helped to raise for charity."
