Age 12, Essex
I’m part of the 1st Hawkwell Girls’ Brigade in Essex, and we do lots of fundraising together. This year I was in the ‘Sound of Musicals’, a production we put on to raise money for our local charity HARP helping people who are homeless. I’ve also helped my Nan with an afternoon tea event to raise money for breast cancer research, taken part in a fun swim to fundraise for sports equipment to send to Uganda, stayed awake at a giant sleepover to raise money to prevent human trafficking, baked for cake sales, and once I even cut off my hair as a fundraiser!
But I think the cause that I care most about is Alzheimer’s. My Nan suffered from the disease, and she inspired me to support the Alzheimer’s Society. I’ve come up with lots of fundraising ideas to raise money for the charity, and I like getting my friends and others from my Girls’ Brigade group to join in too. I love working alongside others because it makes it so much fun.
