They need money more than I need more toys

IslaWe’ve just heard about Isla from Harpenden in Hertfordshire who’s celebrating her sixth birthday today!

After some recent fundraising at school for Barnardo’s Isla decided to request donations to the charity instead of any presents on her birthday.

Her parents helped her set up a Virgin Money Giving page and her friends and family will be donating to this page rather than sending her birthday presents.

Her dad, Sean, explained: “When we asked her what she wanted for her birthday, Isla said she didn’t want any toys and that we should give the money to Barnado’s instead, saying, ‘They need money more than I need more toys’”.

Isla hopes to raise £100 for the UK’s largest children’s charity and by tea time on her birthday had already raised £40.
