KIND-hearted Harlow schoolgirl Keira has raised well over a thousand pounds for victims of the Australian bushfires by holding a Lemonade stall on Sunday afternoon.
As YH reported on Saturday, Keira’s class at St James’ C of E school had been discussing the Australian bushfires and how they could help. When she returned to her Rundells home, Keira came up with the idea of hosting a Lemonade stall.
Her parents created a justgiving page which also included a hand-written letter from Kiera which she posted to all her neighbours. A YH reader (thanks Angela!) spotted this and told us about it. We published a story which hundreds of readers saw and duly made it their mission to head down to Keira’s Lemonade stall on Sunday afternoon.
Neighbours, dog-walkers, joggers, even two local councillors flocked to Kiera’s very busy stall. They all reported that the lemonade was great.
By Monday morning, the total had passed over £1400. An amazing feat.
Keira has been praised by not only Harlow residents but also people in Australia who are very grateful for one community minded little girl
At the end of the day, Keira just wanted to say thank you.
