8-year-old Stansted girl's talents in jewellery design raise money for NHS Charities Together
Beautifully hand-crafted necklaces made by an eight-year-old Stansted girl have raised more than £500 for NHS Charities Together.
Aimee Channing, a pupil at St Mary's CoE Primary in the village, decided to get crafty to occupy her time during lockdown and discovered she had a real flair for creating decorative jewellery made out of resin.
She set up a stall outside her Herrington Avenue home, where she lives with mum Lauren and brother William, 4, and was overwhelmed by the response.
Lauren said: "She's very artistic and has really enjoyed doing it. She made lots and said she would like to sell them for charity and was inundated with orders.
"She's put shells in them, sprinkles, flowers and sat outside on our doorstep most of the day with her necklaces – she even got some special orders.
"She's so chuffed with the overwhelming response. Everyone's wearing her jewellery and she's raised money for charity."
Dad David has been a big support, matching the donations. He said: "I'm so proud of her."
