    Kind-hearted Doncaster six-year-old Georgia Ardron knew exactly what she wanted to do to celebrate her birthday…

    She decided to forgo presents from all of the 26 friends attending her party – and asked for donations to Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice instead.

    The Tickhill Estfield Primary pupil raised a whopping £300 and proudly brought a cheque to the North Anston hospice.

    Georgia’s parents Lyndsey and Chris knew about the care and support hospice staff give, as the two-year-old son of family friend Sarah Spencer is a hospice child.

    “Georgia knows how much hospice staff are helping little George and his mum. She is a very kind little girl and thinking of others before herself is very much in her nature,” said Lyndsey.

    “We would like to thank the parents of Georgia’s friends, who gave so generously to the collection at her party.”

    George was diagnosed with West Syndrome, a form of seizure disorder, when he was 10 weeks old, which has developed into Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome, a rare and severe form of epilepsy.

    He has seizures daily and cannot sit upright but is enjoying hydrotherapy sessions at Bluebell Wood which will strengthen his head and neck.

    Said his mum Sarah: “We think it's lovely that Georgia has donated to the hospice instead of having birthday presents, and it is especially nice that she will be able to see the benefits of her donation through George. Thank you, Georgia!"

    Hospice Community Fundraising Manager Sally Baker commented: “We are so touched that Georgia gave up birthday guests to raise money for our work. She is just six years old and already a wonderful role-model!”
