Evie Moscrop is busy raising money for St Mary’s Hospice by making and selling cheerful fridge magnets.

So far the 10-year-old from Barrow has raised £70 with her brightly-designed magnets, which she has sold to friends and family and to people at her mum’s slimming class.

Evie, a pupil at St James’ CE Junior School, fundraises in memory of her treasured great auntie, Christine Mason, of Barrow, who died in May.

Evie’s mum Leanne Moscrop, 33, of Franklin Street, said: “After losing a treasured family member earlier this year to cancer Evie wanted to raise money for the hospice to give something back and honour the memory of our dear auntie.

“She cares very deeply for others and is very compassionate for a girl of her age. The magnets she makes are very pretty and brightly coloured and instantly cheer people up.

“Evie also took part in a 5k walk this summer in aid of Cancer Research. We are so very proud of her.”

The Evening Mail has teamed up with Heath’s Toymaster in Barrow to find the area’s most inspirational boy and girl who have shown great courage or selflessness.

Our two Christmas Stars will win a visit from Father Christmas along with a host of festive gifts.
