Ian, owner of Howley’s Toymaster, would like to thank everyone who has supported Sophie with this event by donating to her Just Giving account and cheering her along. Sophie has been overwhelmed by the support and breezed past her initial target of £1,000 after receiving a large amount of coverage from the local press.
Sophie’s Just Giving account currently stands at £2,500; she will be collecting until Christmas and also has collection pots in various shops in Weymouth town, so she may even reach £3,000.
