A seven-year-old girl has been playing her part in a bid to support those involved in the Ukraine crisis. 

Aubrey and Sarah Horner’s daughter Amelia, of Little Downham, has picked up and dropped off different items, from toiletries to tinned food, for the ‘Ukraine Lifeline’ group

“We went along with middle child James a couple of weekends ago,” said Aubrey.  

“We took donations like tinned food, toiletries and spoke to one of the Taylor family behind the group.” 

Amelia, who has donated items alongside older brother James, is working towards her ‘charities’ badge with the 1st Little Downham Brownies group.

She also had a tour of the Corkers site in Pymoor, where ‘Ukraine Lifeline’ are distributing their items. 

Sarah said: “Both children are very keen to help and give what they can. 

"We try to say ‘can you imagine what it would be like to leave our home and what would we leave behind?’
