Darwen schoolgirl dresses-up for East Lancashire Hospice

A seven-year old girl  dressed up every day during the Easter Holidays to raise money for East Lancashire Hospice.


Georgia Faulkner, started the week long challenge on the 10th April and managed to become a new character every morning.

Her creations included a minion, a burglar from Home Alone,  Hermione from Harry Potter, ET, Thunder Force, Finding Nemo and the witch from The Wizard of Oz.

Georgia has raised an impressive £250 for the hospice as a result of her fancy dress fundraising efforts.

The kind-hearted schoolgirl said: “I got the idea to dress up from my new toothbrush - it had minions on and I thought it would be fun to dress up as a minion too, but for a charity. I asked my dad if I could dress up to raise money for a charity and mum helped me to decide what charity to do it for.”

Proud mum, Faye Faulkner, commented: “We have a connection to the hospice as Georgia’s great grandma, Josephine Hall, was cared for by the hospice in her final days as she battled with ovarian cancer. Georgia wanted to do something in the school holidays to help others and we are so proud of her.”
