A creative young girl has sold scores of cards she made to her friends, family and neighbours to raise funds for Torbay Hospital's children's ward staff and patients.
Ezme Firth, aged nine, of Teignmouth, raised £565 from selling the good wishes cards she designed from her front garden.
She said: 'I wanted to treat the staff of the children's ward because they are doing a lot for us and risking their lives during the virus.'
Ezme presented items bought with the proceeds to ward staff along with her mother Emma Firth.
Items included toiletries, foot creams, biscuits, chocolates, a smoothie maker and DAB radio for staff.
Emma Perryman, paediatric sister of the Louisa Cary Ward, said: 'This was a fantastic effort by Ezme.'
Emma said: 'I'm super proud of Ezme. She did this all off her own back. She's that type of girl, she loves helping other people.'
