Five-year-old Isaac raises £500 to buy food for struggling families

A five-year-old Catterick Garrison boy has raised more than £500 to help feed those struggling during the pandemic.

Isaac Daly, who attends Hipswell Primary School, was inspired to act after seeing the appeal for donations of food in the town’s Tesco store.

Mum Amy said: “He asked if he could do some jobs and earn some money so he could, in his words ‘buy food for the children and people who don’t have any’.

“He earnt £10 and filled his trolly but this wasn’t enough.”

Isaac decided to run a raffle and has so far raised more than £500.

The youngster said: “I want to buy advent calendars for the children, soap so people can wash and as much food as possible.”

Isaac is hoping his idea encourages other children to do the same and hopes he can raise awareness for the local foodbank appeal.
