The lovely Lily is at it again - raising as much money as she can for Weldmar Hospicecare.

This time, the 10-year-old has produced her own cards with 10 photographs she has taken around Bridport, West Bay, Burton Bradstock and Dorset.

Lily said: “We tried to choose places that were recognisable so that when you look at the card you could straight away know where that was, so places like Colmers Hill, Durdle Door and we did one at Cogden which is quite nice, it’s of the sunset, and we did others of Bridport, the town hall, that’s quite recognisable and Have Beach and West Bay harbour. There’s lots of different iconic places that you would know where that was.

“What started it all off was one picture that I took and we thought it was quite nice, so we thought, ‘what could we do to make it into something for Weldmar’? We came up with the idea of cards, so then after that we started taking more pictures in different places.

“I think taking photos is something that I took off my dad because he used to be a photographer, so every now and then taking a photo is something I enjoy doing.”

Cards cost £2.50 and a pack of five costs £10.

Lily's cards

They are available to buy from Lily’s mum, Kerry, here.

In the past Lily has dressed up as Wonder woman for sponsored walks, organised coffee mornings, taken part in Weldmar events and delivered Christmas treats to both patients and staff at the charity’s inpatient unit.

It’s a charity close to her heart as her nan was cared for at home by the Weldmar Hospicecare community team.
