Young girl from Snodland raises money for the NHS on her YouTube Channel, Lilly's Entertainment

An eight-year-old YouTube star from Snodland is raising money for key workers by completing a series of challenges on her channel.

Lilly Buck set herself 10 tasks to complete in her home in two weeks with the hope of raising enough to create individual care hampers for NHS workers.

Some of the challenges she has already completed include learning the rainbow dance in sign language, hosting a live quiz on YouTube, reading a bedtime story and learning 10 TikTok dances.

So far, Lilly has raised nearly £300 pounds and has completed four out of 10 challenges with the help of younger sister Isabelle, 6, father Paul, 35, and mother Sam, 33.

Lilly's father says she wants to give the care packages to NHS staff at hospitals in Maidstone and Sheppey.

Mr Buck said: "She wanted to do something personal by giving as many workers on the frontline a gift as possible. We had the idea of hampers so they get an individual personal touch.

"Lilly hasn't decided what she wants to include in those packages yet but the more she raises, the more people she can give them to as a way of saying thank you. It'll probably be things like flowers, a box of chocolates and snacks.

"Some of the challenges were a bit far fetched at first so we narrowed it down to things she can actually achieve while at home. She films herself doing the challenges and then uploads it to show everyone.

"Everyday she's asking, what can we do now because she's really keen to keep going. She only set a target of £100 so we're all really proud of what she's achieved."

Lilly, who goes to St Katherine's School, is well on her way to completing all the tasks by her deadline of May 3.

Some of the other challenges Lilly is working towards include going up and down the stairs 1,400 times, riding a bike, asking 10 people to shave a part of their body, doing 100 skips, counting to 20 in Spanish and playing five tricks on her family.
