Sunflower Sale for 7 year old Sophie

  • Posted on May 13, 2019

7 year old Sophie, who’s older cousin Jack has OI, wanted to do some fundraising for the Brittle Bone Society whilst working on her charity badge for Brownies.

Along with her sister, they planted seeds and grew 70 sunflowers to sell at school.   Selling them for £2 each, Sophie managed to sell all 70 in one day and had additional donations to top up her efforts raising a huge £207.05.

Sophie was also able to talk to other pupils at the school teaching them about OI and the work of the Brittle Bone Society.

Sophie told us “ I am very excited that I raised so much money for a great charity that has helped my cousin and I hope the money I raised will help lots of other people”  Well done Sophie, you are certainly well deserving of your Brownie badge.
