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.
