Harley’s gifts to children in refuge
A six-year-old made Christmas a bit more special for children left with little or nothing.
Harley Lowndes, of Market Deeping, inspired by television adverts about poor children across the world, told his mum Sara that he wanted to do something to help.
Sara persuaded him to help children closer to home and they set about collecting gifts for children at a Women’s Aid refuge for victims of domestic abuse.
Sara said: “I arranged a party for about 30 of his friends at the Coronation Hall and asked all of them to bring along a wrapped gift marked with whether it was for a boy or girl and what age group.
“We collected about 50 gifts in the end and had five bin bags full for Women’s Aid to collect so that all the children had something to open on Christmas Day.
“Harley was really pleased and I am so proud of him. It was a sweet thing to do for children who are not as well off as he is.”
