Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Helping Others -

She raised an im­pres­sive £250.50p and pre­sented the money to the team at the re­hom­ing cen­tre last Mon­day, along with her mum An­gela and dad Kevin.

Mr Han­naford said: “This is the first time Cora has done this. She got it in her head that she wanted to do it and that was that.”

Mrs Han­naford added: “This is a lovely thing she has done. She is an­i­mal crazy; she is try­ing to con­vince us to get a dog but we al­ready have two cats.

“Cora has said she would like to be a vet when she is older and I can def­i­nitely imag­ine her on sa­fari or some­thing sim­i­lar.”

Lara Mur­phy from the Dogs Trust in Can­ter­bury said: “We were ab­so­lutely de­lighted to re­ceive the gen­er­ous dona­tion from Cora. We re­ally en­joyed show­ing her around the re­hom­ing cen­tre and in­tro­duc­ing her to our home­less hounds who her thought­ful gift will help care for.

“Her love of dogs was clearly ev­i­dent and we hope she en­joyed re­ceiv­ing lots of licks and wags from our grate­ful four-legged res­i­dents. We work re­ally hard to make the dogs’ stay here as nice as pos­si­ble and kind do­na­tions such as Cora’s help us pro­vide the best pos­si­ble care for our dogs while they wait for lov­ing new homes.”

Cora, who is in Year 4, said: “I would like to thank all my friends and class­mates from Willes­bor­ough Ju­nior School, who do­nated.”

Cora Han­naford presents the Dogs Trust with £250, which she raised by ask­ing friends to do­nate cash for her birth­day rather than presents
