A 3-year-old has been crafting Christmas decorations to sell in order to raise money for local animal shelters.
Lillie-Mai Hawthorne, from Meir, has been making the lolly-stick Christmas trees and selling them for £2 so that she can raise money for the local shelter, Animal Lifeline.
Mum, Jade Oldfield said “When we drive past Animal Lifeline, we see the volunteers walking the dogs.”
One afternoon, when they got home, Jade got their craft materials out and asked Lillie-Mai if she wanted to make some decorations to sell for the dogs.
“She was jumping up and down, shouting yes. Ever since, she’s done nothing but raise money for the dogs.”
So far, £113 has been raised and together, they have collected blankets, towels, toys, food and treats for the dogs.
“Every time we go shopping, she fills my basket with food and treats. She’s amazing.”
Lillie-Mai is asking for others to follow in her footsteps and help her to donate more items for animals in need.
“If anyone could help us by donating blankets, towels, dog food, dog treats also dog toys even if they have been used.”
The decorations can be purchased by contacting Jade through Facebook.
