On Thursdayshe and her family dropped some off to delighted district nurses at the Island's hospital in Plover Road, Minster.

Lilly from Snodland raised more than £1,800 by completing a series of challenges with the help from young sister Isabelle, six, dad Paul, 35, and mum Sam, 33.

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."

Challenges included learning the rainbow dance in sign language, hosting a live quiz on YouTube, reading a bedtime story, learning 10 TikTok dances, running up and down 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.

Mr Buck added: "Everyday she was asking what she could do next. She only set a target of £100 so we're all really proud of what she's achieved."
