A five-year-old has launched a fundraiser to help people struggling during the cost of living crisis.

Little Eve Richardson is taking orders for handmade bracelets and using the cash to buy money for her local food bank in Sunderland, Tyne and Wear.

Impressively, she’s had more than 80 orders so far and has already donated numerous food shops to the bank.

Eve is selling bracelets for £2 and has made more than £100 so far – but this number will continue to grow as she works her way through orders.

The proud mum explains that her daughter just loves to help people.

Bridie says: ‘She always wants to help others, it’s just the kind of person she is.

‘Whether it’s giving her clothes or toys away to charity or getting involved in fundraising, she is just so kind.

‘Eve told me that she wanted to help out in some way so she came up with this idea and it’s working really well.’
