KIDS ARE ALRIGHT FINALIST 017: Elli Hayward-Love, 16, from Wisbech

ELLI bagged our final monthly prize after holding a sponsored pool marathon to raise money for an 11-year-old leukaemia sufferer at her school.

The teenager played pool with her friends for 10 hours to raise hundreds of pounds to help send little Shannon Foster on the trip of a lifetime.

Elli had decided to hold her own fundraising event after she was unable to support the cause at a charity bingo night at Thomas Clarkson Community College.

Judge Beth Moore said: “Elli is a true nomination. She’s tireless, selfless and she really deserves this.”
