 Published on: 30th April 2020   |   By: Amneet Kaur   |   Category: Uncategorized

Toni Foskett, who works at St Martin’s School, has been raising money for the NHS by creating and selling keyrings.

She started making them for Mother’s Day and they sold well, when the pandemic happened Toni wanted to do her bit to help, she decided to continue making keyrings and to write NHS on top of them.

She said: “I showed one to my son and he said, Mum I don’t think they’re going to do quite well but now we’ve raised about £3400, which is amazing.”

“It’s really heartbreaking, my neighbour is a care assistant, they did not have the right equipment, they didn’t have the masks, so it just sort of hit home and I thought if I could try to raise some money just to help, I would have been happy with just £20, but the money we’ve raised now will actually make a difference.”

Toni uses vinyl to pop the key words, such as ‘NHS’ ‘carer’ or ‘keyworker’ onto a pink heart, which she sells for £2 each. The keyrings have been sold all over the country.
