We have been touched and inspired by the commitment of 10 year old Jessica Hubbard, who has joined with friends to fundraise for Brain Tumour Support in her local neighbourhood.

Determined to help others in a similar position, Jessica wanted to raise funds for the local Wolverhampton Brain Tumour Support Group, and she has come up with all sorts of ideas to achieve her goal.
With help of good friends she has organised a neighbourhood stall to sell home-made rose petal perfume, lavender bunches, cards, and tea lights, as well as bric-a-brac (mostly unwanted books and old toys) and, when the weather has been hot, even ice lollies.
Jessica set a target of raising £100 by the end of the summer holidays, but as they have already raised £75 she has now increased the target to £150.
On 14th August the intrepid charity fundraisers have a stall planned at a wider charity event at the local village hall, and they plan to continue with their regular stand on the park throughout the summer holidays and will also be introducing cupcake sales and a car washing service!
To promote their stall and services they have even designed and produced a special flyer which they will be posting through letter boxes in their neighbourhood over the coming weeks.
The enthusiasm and entrepreneurial spirit of Jessica and her friends is an inspiration to us too, and our heartfelt thanks go out to Jessica, her family and friends.
