Imogen Leeds is just nine but is already giving back to her community by fundraising during the coronavirus lockdown.

Her mum, Laura Collins, said it was all her daughter’s idea and said: “I wasn’t surprised when she said she wanted to do this.

“Everyone in the area has been so nice about it and they’ve all come along and bought some.

“Imogen has a heart of gold she really is the sweetest little girl and she makes me so proud – she is very thoughtful and thinks about others a lot.”
