The covid-19 restrictions have led to some amazing efforts to help other people, and Sheringham schoolgirl Evie Price is no exception.

The 12-year-old decided she wanted to do something to help raise money for the NHS and used her birthday money to buy beads and string to make bracelets to sell.

“She said she wanted to raise £250 but when we last looked it was up to £750,” said mum Emily Harrison.

“We have every colour of beads under the sun and they are just being snapped up.”

Evie unpacks another bag of beads ready to make more bracelets to raise money for the NHS.

She’s making sure that the Sheringham High School pupil keeps up with her schoolwork in the mornings, and then afternoons are devoted to designing, making and despatching the bracelets.

“I said she had to do all her work and then she could do her orders.”

To begin with, Emily just posted her daughter’s work on her Facebook page but word soon spread and she has also set up a Crowdfunder to boost her target.

Evie said: “I would just like to say a huge thank you to everybody who has bought bracelets and donated to my crowdfunding page.

“I cannot believe I have raised over £700… I’m so pleased it will be going to a fantastic cause!”
