A nine-year-old girl sold some of her dolls in a bid to raise money for a charity close to her heart following her father’s sudden death in 2019.
Matilda Summers sold her toys to buy brand new popular ‘fidget toys’ which she sold on for a profit using her mother’s Facebook page.
Matilda donated all of her profits to bereavement charity STARS and heart muscle charity Cardiomyopathy UK after her father died of an undiagnosed heart condition.
Stefanie Summers, Matilda’s mother, of Wisbech, said: “She advertised [the fidget toys] and set up a donate button on my Facebook page.
“Matilda decided in the last lockdown that she wanted to do something positive and raise money for charity.
