KIND-hearted Daisy Mae Haycock set her stall out early to raise money to help “Make Kyle Smile.”
The seven-year-old decided to fundraise for Kyle Buckley who is suffering from a rare muscle cancer and organised a table top sale which raise £200.
She set up the stall outside Morris’s butchers in Market Street, Farnworth, where her Nanny Jannie — Janet Fallows — works, and was ready for business at 7.30am.
Mrs Fallows said:”My daughter Michelle is a friend of Kyle’s mum and Daisy Mae wanted to help.
“She was going to have a sale in my street but I told her not many people passed that way and suggested she had it outside the shop.”
Daisy spent two days gathering toys and other items to sell and priced them all up herself.
She then set off bright and early and stayed at the stall until 3pm. Several customers gave a donation and she raised £150 which was made up to the final total by family and the butchers.
Her mum said:”She did brilliantly. I am very proud of her. I went to school with Kyle’s mum Carol and we have a collection tin at The Best Connection in Bradshawgate where I work. Daisy Mae wanted to raise money too.”
The Bowness Primary school pupil said: “It was very tiring but I wanted to carry on. I sold some of my toys as well as shoes and handbags. Lots of people coming out of the shop gave me their change.”
The youngster and her mum, from Farnworth, will continue collecting for Kyle and there is a collection tin at the butchers.
Kyle, aged 11, from Deane, spent two years undergoing intense chemotherapy to overcome Rhabdomyosarcoma but it returned in March. Family and friends are fundraising for potential medical trials in London or the USA in search of a cure.
