Gracie Leeks, 7, has raised £150 for East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices through a sponsored silence.

Gracie, from Clermont Avenue, Sudbury, stayed silent for the day on February 7, and recently visited the Treehouse hospice in Ipswich to hand over the money.

Gracie’s mum Kelly said: “She is a very proud little girl and wants to thank everybody that donated.

“We are now discussing the next local charity who she can fundraise for.”
