A YOUNG fundraiser has used her favourite hobby to help a local charity.

Poppie Morgan-Roller, 11, from Athersley North, caught the fundraising bug at an early age and her favourite hobby is beading so she wanted to combine the two.

Poppie, who attends Athersley North Primary School, has been helping Barnsley Hospital Charity, making bookmarks and more recently bracelets to sell on stalls.

Jane Mills, charity development manager, said: “Poppie’s dedication to crafting bracelets and raising funds for Barnsley Hospital Charity is truly inspiring. The initiative not only demonstrates compassion but also a commitment to making a positive difference in the community.

“It is heart-warming when we are supported by young fundraisers, as their actions remind us all of the power we hold to create positive change in the world.”
