She added: “She did everything herself, she had the idea, and organised the stall and I just think it was brilliant.

“She was selling sausage rolls and had a raffle, and we got as many friends and family as possible to come down and support her

“It’s a lovely thing because its all her own idea - she was reading a book and she said I want to do something for children not as lucky as I am.”
