Young Alice Spicer wanted to do something to help people affected by the Grenfell Tower disaster and asked her head teacher if she could stand in the playground before and after school collecting donations.
The Year 6 pupil at St Philip’s Primary School, New Town, Uckfield, was given permission and collected £126.89 in her labelled bucket.
Then when civil engineering company C J Thorne & Co heard what she was doing they made an additional contribution of £50.
The total of £176.89 is being sent by headteacher Joanna Sanchez to the British Red Cross London Fire Relief Fund for the Victims of Grenfell Tower.
Alice said: “I can’t believe I collected so much, I’m so happy.”
