An eight-year-old Potters Bar girl organised a table top sale to raise money for an animal centre.

Ladbrooke JMI pupil Daisy Harryman made cakes and biscuits, and also sold her own toys to raise money for dogs at the RSPCA Southridge Animal Centre.

The youngster planned the event, with a little help from her family, by putting up posters and Facebook statuses to encourage local residents to pop down.

Mum Nancy said: “It was all completely her idea. On the day her big sister Jasmine supported her on the stall.

“We are so proud of her and her dedication to animals, as are many families in the area who came down just to support her idea.

“Everyone has been generous to this cause. She raised £118 and this is going up still with further donations coming in.”

An RSPCA spokesperson said: “Daisy has worked really hard to raise money for much-needed dogs in the RSPCA’s care.

“We are really hoping to feature her in either our Autumn or Winter issue of Animal Action.

“Many thanks, once again, to Daisy – we really do appreciate her hard work and devotion to caring for animals.

“She plans [to do] another one in the summer. Daisy is just concerned with the dogs but we would really like her hard work to be celebrated.”
