A PENARTH schoolgirl has raised £100 for the local Marie Curie Hospice that cared for her grandfather before his death, writes Gareth Ellis.
Kierra Clarke’s grandfather, Alan Brain, died in March 2012.
But even after his death Marie Curie were there to offer counselling to his wife and Kierra’s grandmother.
Because of their dedication and care the 8-year-old student at Victoria Primary decided to set up a stall selling old clothes, toys, and bric and brac.
As well as selling her old possessions, she also opened a lemonade stand on her street to help her raise extra money for the charity.
She met with fundraising manger Karen Jones at the Bridgeman Road hospice recently to hand over the cheque.
