A kind hearted 11-year-old hosted a Macmillan Coffee Afternoon instead of having a birthday party.
Jaime Cooper held the event at her home in Salisbury Road on her birthday - Wednesday, September 27, with cakes she’d made herself.
The Downs Primary School pupil invited about 20 friends and family to attend, raising £78.78 in just two-hours.
Her mum Julie Cooper said: “It was all Jaime’s idea.
“She came to me saying she’d like to raise money for Macmillan in memory of my dad and her grandad Jim Lewis who died of cancer in June 2013.
“We ordered the Macmillan pack online and she hung up the bunting around our dining room.”
Her dad Andy Cooper, who made teas and coffee for visitors and helped clean up, added: “It was so kind of her to do it. We’re very proud.”
Generous donations the next day rounded her collection up to £100.
Se and her parents have thanked everyone who helped or donated.
