Liversedge girl Ruby McCulloch has been putting her artistic and entrepreneurial skills to the test – and raising money for charity at the same time.

Ruby’s Fun Flowers was inspired by seven-year-old Ruby who wanted to raise money for Martin House Hospice.

Her proud dad Andrew said: “She had an idea for painting plantpots to raise money for charity and has done a lot of the work herself.

“We bought plant pots and paint and she invited people around to paint their own pots.

“We did about 50 altogether and Ruby was thrilled when her year two teacher, Miss Kayleigh Penrose, heard about the event and came along to paint a plant pot too.”

Andrew said Ruby was planning another pot painting session in the autumn term.
