Raising money for children

Popular Stories

Wallan’s Laylah Cook is tying up her hair and making scrunchies to raise money for the Royal Children’s Hospital Good Friday Appeal.

The idea came to the seven-year-old after doing a workshop in Kilmore two weeks ago.

“At the workshop we made scrunchies and I loved it so I asked mum if we could make some more,” Laylah said.

“We then wanted to sell them to people and get money for the Good Friday Appeal.”

An online post by her mother went viral and the family have been working hard to keep up with demand.

“It’s been crazy, we’re running out so we have to keep making more,” Ms Lonsdale said.

“It takes about 30 minutes each for the kids to make one scrunchie – I spend about five hours a day helping them out because they can’t do it all themselves.”

Laylah said she really liked making the pink and purple scrunchies to sell.

“We’re making them for the children’s hospital to help people get better,” Laylah said.

“We go to the Good Friday Appeal every year, so while we’re down there we can take the money with us,” Ms Lonsdale said.

“We’ve sold about 30 or so online – it’s such a good cause.”
