And she didn’t even cave on the last day of the month when she was surrounded by Halloween trick or treat goodies.

Her grandmother Bev Dawes said: “Ellie did this completely on her own, not as a part of a school intitiatve or anything.

“I feel that what she has done is truly selfless and I am so very proud of her.”
