Elizabeth Frazer-Wicks aged 6 from Tydd St Giles decided to raise money to buy Easter eggs for children who may otherwise not get one.

Her mum Angela said: “She made this decision after speaking to me about the number of children currently living in poverty in the UK.

“She thought it was very sad that these children didn’t have enough money for treats, including Easter eggs.”

Elizabeth decided to empty all of her money boxes and use the money to buy eggs. She had a total of £10 but she wanted to raise more.

Angela said; “Once her teachers and friends at Kinderley Primary School found out they joined her and helped by donating eggs too.

“Her friends and family across the country wanted to help as well so her daddy had to set up a Just Giving page.”

All together she collected dozens of eggs and raised over £100. She was able to donate eggs to three local food banks, three women’s refuges and the children’s ward at Queen Elizabeth Hospital at King’s Lynn.

Her mum said: “When we asked what she would like for Easter she said ‘I wish all four million children living in poverty could have a fantastic Easter”.
