8-year-old girl raises £500 for the NHS

SHARE:

Eight year old Faith Simpson from Kirkbride in Cumbria has raised £500 for the Intensive Care Unit at Cumberland Infirmary in Carlisle.

To keep busy whilst at home and unable to go to school, Faith decided to use her time to make dream catchers and wind chimes. She set up a stall outside her family home and sold her crafts to raise money for the NHS, raising a total of £500.

Faith said:

“Whilst being at home during the coronavirus lockdown I decided I wanted to keep myself busy by making something that people could enjoy looking at as they were stuck in their homes and gardens.

“I decided to make dream catchers and wind chimes. I set up a stall outside on the roadside outside my house and sold them.

“I was supported by family and friends, and the village community. I was overwhelmed by everyone’s support. The work the NHS has been doing is amazing and I would like to say a BIG thank you to you all!”

The nursing and medical staff on the Intensive Care Unit at Cumberland Infirmary said:

“We would like to say a big thank Faith for such a generous donation to our unit.  It has touched us all that someone so young has devoted her time to doing something so innovative and to help others during such challenging times.  We would like Faith to know that we are very proud and grateful of her support.  She has definitely lifted the morale of the staff after a difficult few months. We use the money Faith raised to invest in patient care on the unit.”
