Six-year-old organises fundraiser to thank Charity for grandad’s dementia care

A six-year-old girl has raised money for the charity caring for her grandfather.

Greta Thomas held a summer fundraiser at her home for The Royal Star & Garter Home in Surbiton, which is caring for grandfather Mark Farmer.

Thirty friends and family from Christ Church Primary School in Bradford on Avon attended an ice cream and cake celebration in Greta’s garden, raising £140 for the Home.

Mr Farmer, who is living with dementia, has been a resident at the Home for three years. The Charity cares for ex-Servicemen and women and their partners living with disability or dementia. Mr Farmer served in the Royal Corps of Signals between 1963 and 1969.

Claire Thomas, Greta’s mum and Mr Farmer’s daughter, said: “She’s been desperate for months to do a fundraiser for the Charity but finding the right thing for a six-year-old was tricky. £140 is a lot for a child to raise, and I’m really proud of her.”

Greta said:“Fundraising for The Royal Star & Garter Homes was really good because it was fun. I am amazed at how much money we got.”

Liz Donaldson, Dementia Care Managerat the Surbiton Home, said: “Greta is obviously an incredibly caring and loving granddaughter, and we’re touched with the money she’s raised for the Charity. We can’t thank her enough!”
