Chesterfield schoolgirl raises thousands of pounds to help the homeless with sponsored skip
A generous schoolgirl has raised more than £2,000 to help the homeless in Chesterfield after she took part in a week-long sponsored skip.
Eva-Mae Lomas, of Old Whittington, skipped non-stop for 30 minutes every day last week in aid of Pathways of Chesterfield.
After the charity challenge, the six-year-old said: “I’m tired but I’m really happy that the homeless people will have new warm clothes and food.”
Her mum Becky said: “Eva-Mae is only six but she has so much empathy and concern for others.
“We’re all so proud of her – she’s such a selfless little girl.
“Her fundraiser went amazingly – she did so well.
“Every penny means an awful lot to Pathways – and we’d like to say thank you to everyone who has donated.”
There is still time for people to sponsor Eva-Mae via her JustGiving page at www.justgiving.com/fundraising/eva-mae-lomas.
