A KIND-HEARTED five-year-old Bromsgrove girl who has made some Christmas gift bags to raise funds for youngsters spending time in Birmingham Children’s Hospital (BCH).
Each bag created by Alivia Faulkner, who goes to the town’s Millfields First School, contained a small candle, candy cane and a charm.
She told her dad Russell that she wanted to sell them and ‘buy some presents for poorly children’ with the money made.
Her mum Joanne works on the intensive care unit at the BCH amd Alivia was worried the children there might not get any presents so wanted to buy some toys for them. She will then go onto the unit with her mum and hand them out to the sick youngsters, their parents and siblings.
Russell said: “I think this is a sensational thing to do from such a small little girl who just wants to help and in the current world we live in, it is nice to hear that there is still some good left in the world.”
She has raised £80 so far from selling the bags and has received some great feedback from those who have bought them.
Through the bag-making, Alivia also wanted to encourage people to donate to the BCH to give as many youngsters there as possible a better Christmas.
