Two youngsters made bracelets to sell for lifeboat charity.

Two nine-year-old schoolgirls put their creative heads on to raise money for Appledore RNLI.

Appledore Primary School pupils Lucy Jones and Sophie Miller decided to make bracelets to sell to raise money.

They knocked on their neighbours doors on Irsha Street, selling the bracelets to raise a total of £15.

Lucy’s mum Jacqueline said she was ‘very proud’ of the girls taking the initiative to do something for the charity.

She said: “They wanted to do something to help the RNLI to continue rescuing people in need.”

Lucy and Sophie presented the money to Appledore coxswain Martin Cox, who in turn gave them each a fundraising certificate.

He said: “It’s so nice to see such young people wanted to do something to raise money.

“Without people like them we wouldn’t be able to deliver the service we do keeping people safe at sea.

“It’s brilliant to see.”
