Read all about it! Bookworm Scarlett completes her fundraising challenge for EACH

Bookworm Scarlett Bloomfield gave it all she’s plot and raised nearly £100 for East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH).

The ten-year-old, from Colchester, decided to read her collection of Daisy children’s fiction books, written by Kes Gray.

She gave herself a week to complete the challenge, collected sponsorship from family and friends and raised £93.

However, far from it proving a tale order, Scarlett completed the last book on the sixth day, finishing with time to spare.

Mum Gillian said: “Scarlett decided she wanted to raise money to help support the amazing work of EACH.

“She challenged herself to read 11 Daisy books in a week – then found another, so it changed to 12.

“She was very determined and did a fantastic job, raising money for a very special cause. We are super proud of her.”

As a thank you for her fundraising efforts, Scarlett will receive a certificate and butterfly badge from her chosen charity, which cares for children and young people with life-threatening conditions, and their families, across North Essex, Suffolk, Cambridgeshire and Norfolk.

It has three hospices, including one at The Treehouse, in Ipswich.

Georgina Morrison, EACH Community Fundraising Assistant for Suffolk and East Essex, said: “It’s incredibly kind of Scarlett to think of us. Massive congratulations to her for completing not only some amazing fundraising but also a difficult challenge.”
