FUND-RAISING five-year-old Alfie Curry is working hard to raise money in memory of his grandfather.
Last month Alfie and his mum raised more than £200 for the Motor Neurone Disease Association by selling cakes to neighbours and holding a tombola in the Isaac Newton Centre.
At the weekend he held a cake sale at Allington with Sedgebrook Primary School, raising £60 in just two hours.
Proud mum Linda Curry, of Chilvers Close, Barrowby, said: “I’m really pleased with the support we‘ve been getting from all sorts of people. We’ve had prizes donated by many local businesses and members of the public.
“People have said they have seen us in the Journal and keep praising Alfie for his hard work. Members of the public have been stopping us and giving us donations and a couple of weeks ago a member of the Grantham Lions knocked at our door and gave us a cheque for £25 to donate.
“Even the cake boxes we used at the cake sale have been donated.”
Mum and son sold cakes at three for £1 and also held a small raffle with prizes donated by kind-hearted people and businesses.
Alfie lost his grandfather to motor neurone disease three years ago so decided he wanted to help people like his grandfather by raising money.
The pair will continue raising money and hope to hold a charity children’s party in the next couple of months.
