Kind-hearted girl from Weymouth uses money to send children to school
A KIND-hearted youngster spent her savings on sending children to school on the other side of the world.
While lessons may be a chore for most children of her age, Chloe Frampton, four, enjoys it so much that she wanted to help others who are less fortunate.
Chloe, who lives in Weymouth, donated her money to a collection tin at the Hope Church.
Her mum Kate said: “We took her tin down to the church to put pennies in the different charity boxes, and there was one tin she went straight up to that said it cost £5 to send a child to school in Peru for a year.
“She put £10 in, which was half of what she had in her money box, and then made me put £5 in as well.
“After that she was on a roll.”
Chloe, who suffers from lung disease, put the rest of her savings into tins collecting money for cancer and lung disease charities.
Kate said: “Chloe was very premature but although she does still suffer, she is not limited in what she can do, and she really enjoys sports and things.
“My mum decorates the Christmas tree for Julia’s House every year at Hope Church and we have always been very open with Chloe that it is thanks to such charities that she is well.”
She added: “I was still amazed and very proud that Chloe was so enthusiastic about helping the different charities.
“She donated about £20 altogether, which is a lot of money for a four-year-old.
“It’s money that she has saved throughout the year, from when people give her pennies.”
Chloe, who goes to Radipole Primary School, said: “I think it’s important that children go to school because if their parents didn’t go to school that means they might not be able to read and write.
“That means they should go to school because then they can learn.”
