Creative 10-year-old Hannah Burton, of Hunstanton, has raised £2,500 for Children With Cancer by selling paper roses.

The Hunstanton Infant School pupil makes the colourful flowers with her grandmother Monica Burton, also of Hunstanton, and sells them for donations to the charity.

Mrs Burton said Hannah starting selling the flowers for the charity last year when one of her cousins, aged five, was diagnosed with neuroblastoma, and another, aged 15, with leukaemia.

Last year, the sale of the flowers raised £1,644 and this year Hannah has raised around £2,500.

On Tuesday Norfolk Vice- Lord-Lieutenant Lady Romney accepted a cheque on behalf of the Children With Cancer charity at Hunstanton’s Honeystone pub and restaurant, where £1,000 of the total has been raised.

Mrs Burton said: “I’m very proud of Hannah. She sits for ages making the flowers. She wanted to beat last year’s total and is already planning to do the same next year.”

This year Hannah has also made hedgehogs, angels and Christmas trees from book folding.

West Norfolk Mayor Nick Daubney and Hunstanton Mayor Amanda Bosworth also attended the presentation, along with people who have helped and supported Hannah.
