A KIND-HEARTED school girl has collected together many of her own toys and then sold them to raise money for the Donna Louise Hospice.

Tabitha Rushton, aged seven, of Leek, decided she wanted to help children less fortunate than herself and thought about raising money from the sale of her belongings.

The Westwood First School pupil first job was to search through some of her cupboards where she collected a range of games, books and cuddly toys.

Along with her mother Clair she then transported the items to a car boot sale held at Leek Cattle Market during the Bank Holiday weekend. Tabitha said: "I just wanted to help raise some money for children who are ill. I collected many of my belonging and then sold them at the car boot sale. I managed to raise £30. Me and my mum have now taken the money to the Donna Louise shop in Leek who are sending it to the hospice."

Mum, Clair said: "When Tabitha first told me what she wanted to do I thought it was a brilliant and lovely idea.

"Tabitha is very caring and thoughful and it is lovely to think that she care for others chidren who are ill.

“We spent four hours at the car boot selling the goods. Many of her school classmates came to the stall and bought some of the items from us."
