INSTEAD of asking for birthday presents, one young girl from Bishopston requested that family and friends donated money to a cancer charity, which cared for her grandmother.
Maisy Longbottom, who turned nine on January 21, has so far raised £730 for Tenovus - smashing her target of £200.
The charity - which has stores in Bishopston - aims to prevent, treat and find a cure for cancer. The charity offers support, advice and treatment for cancer patients, whilst providing information on cancer prevention and funding for research.
Maisy's grandmother 'Maw Maw', who works at Tenovus, was diagnosed with cancer last year.
Susi Longbottom, Maisy's mother, said: "We are very proud of Maisy for giving up her birthday presents to help people with cancer.
"Her granny 'Maw Maw' had cancer last year and she wanted to help raise money for the cancer charity.
"Maisy has been overwhelmed by the kindness of her friends and family, and plans to keep raising money."
