A SIX-year-old from Uttoxeter has been raising funds for NHS staff and key-workers by selling home-made bracelets. Nancie-Mae Johnson has been making bracelets out of loom bands in a bid to support workers on the front line. So far she has raised more than £60 and - with help from mum Michelle Johnson-Plant - has posted her creations across the Midlands and even across the world.
A pupil at St Joseph’s Primary School, Nancie-Mae said: “I thought I could help people who have the virus or help the nurses, doctors and keyworkers.
“It’s going very good and I can’t believe I have made £60 in one week.
“I’m proud of myself and happy.
“I want to turn mummy’s house into a shop! I will give my money I raise to a nurse.
“I have posted to Australia, Birmingham and Burton so far.”
