BLOG: Never too young to fundraise

When it comes to fundraising to support the care we give, inspirational Kenza Baber is proof that you’re never too young!

On a visit to our specialist unit at Turnchapel, Kenza – who recently celebrated her 11th birthday – presented us with a cheque for a fantastic £938. This was the result of Kenza selflessly forgoing birthday presents this year and asking family and friends to help her raise money for St Luke’s instead.

On the visit, Kenza was joined by her mum, Heidi, and grandma Debbie, who receives care at home from our team. They were warmly welcomed by Janet Hearl, a Social Care Support Worker at St Luke’s, and also met some of our dedicated nurses as well as having a tour of the building.

“I wanted to raise the money because I know it’s important to care for other people,” said Kenza, who attends Lifton Community Primary School, where she recently received a Headteacher’s certificate recognising her caring spirit.

Well done, Kenza! Your kindness is a real inspiration and we’re so grateful for the support from you and everyone who helped you raise the money.
