A 10-year-old Haddington girl used her baking skills to make a brilliant £130 donation to the 'There With Ukraine' campaign launched by Newsquest, the publishers of the East Lothian Courier.

Haddington Primary School pupil Christina Glass set up a lemonade and cupcake stall outside her gran's home on the town's Amisfield Place with the initial target of raising £12 to buy toiletries for Ukraine residents.

Her gran Jane Glass, who works as a nurse in the community hospital in Haddington, was helping a friend collect toiletries to send to Ukraine so young Christina decided to help.

But such was the success of the stall that the kind youngster still had £130 left over after spending about £17 on toiletries - and decided to donate the cash to our 'There With Ukraine' online appeal after its launch in the Courier.

And thanks to gift aid, an additional £32.50 will go to the important cause.

Christina told the Courier that she loved to bake and it was the perfect thing for her to do to help the people of Ukraine.

Christina said: “My granny works for the NHS and one of her friends was collecting money for Ukraine so I decided to do a lemonade stand with cupcakes.

“And I dyed the icing and I made the cupcakes yellow and blue for Ukraine.

Ruth Glass, Christina’s mother, was incredibly proud of her daughter's efforts.

"She loves baking and she baked them all herself," said her mum.

“Christina, her little sister Hayley, and their granny posted a few flyers to say they were having a bake sale and it was just the people of Amisfield Place in Haddington that came round.

“She had a wee stand at her granny’s house, and she made a wee sign, and she made the cupcakes in blue and yellow colours. There wasn't a lot of people there but they were so generous.”
