A huge well done to Kitty who has been putting her artistic talents to great use, raising money for the NHS. She has been busy painting lots of stones with beautiful messages and has raised over £300. What fab work Kitty! UPDATE – Kitty has almost reached £600. What an amazing achievement!

Another HUGE well done to Ruby, who is also thinking of others. She is busy painting stones to raise money for the NHS too. I was also really impressed to see that Ruby has been thinking about others in her village. She has written a letter and painted a stone for an elderly couple living near her. Great work Ruby!

Orla has also been busy raising money for the NHS by selling homemade salt dough decorations from her garden. Well Done Orla, spreading the hope!

Pippa has also been painting stones to raise money for the NHS
