SWEET idea is a charity triumph

A GENEROUS schoolgirl is hoping her fundraising idea will add up to a sweet success.

Six-year-old Tabby Cook is helping to raise money for Children in Need by asking her friends and class mates at Fressingfield Primary School, near Eye, to guess the number of sweets in a jar. Each guess means a 20p donation to Children In Need and the lucky guesser will win the sweets.

Tabby said, “I really wanted to raise money for children who need some extra help. I am hoping to raise lots of money.”

Tabby is getting to school early every morning so she can ask parents and children to take part before school starts.

Niall Cook, Tabby’s father, said: “We are really proud that she wants to help others and has come up with a really good idea to raise money.”
