ROBYN Harper from Hornsea raised £1100 for the NHS in the first lockdown after being inspired by Captain Sir Tom Moore.
Robyn raised the money by making rainbow bracelets and glitter bottles. Of the money raised Robyn donated £600 to Hornsea GP surgery and £500 to Castle Hill Hospital. She then made Halloween beaded bracelets to raise further funds for Hornsea’s GP surgery. Then to raise money for the Poppy Appeal she made poppy key rings and beaded bracelets.
Paying tribute to Captain Sir Tom Moore
Robyn and her mum Amanda Sherlock have now written a poem in memory of Captain Sir Tom Moore which is below.
Bye Bye Captain Sir Tom Moore By Robyn’s Rainbows
Back in April is where it began Captain Tom Moore I thought: “Wow what a great man”. He was a soldier, he fought in the war, and in his life he’s done much, much more. He walked and walked 100 laps, we all had so much praise and applause for that man in his cap. The amazing amount of money he raised for the NHS is what caused Robyn to start her quest. Sleep well Sir Tom you are loved so much, why does Coronavirus and life in Lockdown have to be so very tough? Sir Tom you have gained your wings, you did so much and have changed many things. For the last year life has been rotten, but you will never be forgotten. Robyn is very sad that you have passed, but thanks to your amazing walking your memory will last. Let’s all hope that “Tomorrow will be a good day”.
Robyn’s next fundraising project
Robyn continues with her fundraising inspired by Captain Sir Tom Moore. Currently outside of her home-schooling she is making key rings to raise money for Hornsea Inshore Rescue. So far she has raised £300.
Each of Robyn’s Keyrings has a Hornsea Inshore Rescue logo on one side, and a different design drawn by Robyn on the reverse.
You can support Robyn’s fundraising and purchase a keyring by contacting the Robyn’s Rainbows Hornsea Facebook page. Or you can message Robyn’s mum, Amanda Sherlock, on Facebook.
