The school holidays flew by for seven-year-old Lucy Rawson, 12-year-old Milli Riding and 12-year-old Rachael Brindley.

They were all very busy making loom band bracelets to raise funds for East Lancashire Hospice and made a whopping £82.46. The girls all met at Salesbury Primary School and sold the bands to family and friends because they wanted to help.

The hospice’s Fund-raising Manager, Sharon Crymble, said: “Lucy, Milli and Rachael did a fabulous job making the bands and raised a great amount.

“I have met Lucy previously when she made beaded mats she also sold for the hospice. They should all be really proud of themselves – as we are of them – and I would like to take this opportunity to thank them for all the time they spent doing this to help others.”
