- Raising funds for Giddos Gift and other charities through sponsored events, online competitions and raffles.
Virginia Crosbie said: “I know that Layla Grace loves nothing more than to help other people where she can. Her parents are very supportive and together they should be rightly proud of her achievements.
“It is a real pleasure to see such altruistic activity in one so young and Layla Grace should be an inspiration to us all.”
