Scarlet Coyne set up a stall to offer her crafts and creations to friends, family and neighbours as well as parents and other children at her school in Warrington. She has also been busy advertising her products, some of which are made with colourful loom bands and Hama beads, in Whatsapp and Facebook groups.
Scarlet, who was diagnosed with Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) at the age of just 9 years old, says she decided to fundraise for Burning Nights after the charity helped her to learn more about her condition and to connect with other sufferers. She hopes her efforts will help ensure other CRPS patients get the support that they need.
“CRPS is a painful and debilitating condition and there is not much awareness of it,” she says. “It is important that people diagnosed and their families can get help and information.”
“I was so happy with how much I made and that people loved the items I was selling – people of all ages. I am glad the money raised will go to a charity that means a lot to me and help others who are suffering,” she says.
Scarlet was originally aiming to raise £600 for Burning Nights but now hopes to make up to £1000 after being given some additional donation items that she plans to offer as prizes in a raffle.
