A TEN-YEAR-OLD girl got creative to support the charity that helped her dad and granddad when they suffered heart attacks.

Amy Lee-Shield, a pupil at Kirkby Stephen Primary School, made tree decorations to raise funds for the Great North Air Ambulance Service (GNAAS).

Amy was set the challenge by her school to raise money for charity and she quickly decided on the lifesaving organisation after it helped her dad and granddad.

The youngster managed to raise £70 by selling her decorations.

A GNAAS spokesman said: “She chose GNAAS because both her dad and grandad unfortunately suffered heart attacks and required the services of our charity.

“Well done Amy!”
