Niamh’s special gift in memory of Nanna
A creative school girl used her jewellery-making talents to support St Catherine’s Hospice as a thank you for the care her wonderful nanna received.
Niamh wanted to do something to show how grateful she was for the care they gave to her nanna Gladys when she attended for weekly day therapy sessions.
As a lover of all things crafty, the 10-year-old decided making jewellery to sell to pals would be the ideal way to raise some much-needed funds for the charity.
Niamh used her skills to create an amazing selection of necklaces, bracelets, earrings and key and bag charms.
She also sold them to friends at Lostock Hall Girl Guides, where she is a member, and in total raised a fantastic £150.
Niamh, from Higher Walton, said: “I’m a very crafty person – I love making things!
“I wanted to give something back for looking after my nanna and decided this would be a good way of doing it. She was a very special person and they looked after her so well.
“The jewellery went down really well with my friends – especially the boys! They were queuing up to buy presents for their mums’ and sisters’. Now I’m already thinking of what I can do next for St Catherine’s.”
Mumadded: “This was all Niamh’s idea and she has done so well.
“We’re very proud of what she’s achieved – and know her nanna would be too.”
Lynne Whittaker, senior fundraiser, said: “We’re so impressed with Niamh’s jewellery – it looks fantastic!
“We’d like to say a huge thank you to her for using her talents to support St Catherine’s – the money she has raised really will make a difference.”
