A seven-year-old  schoolboy has raised £500 for a cancer charity by selling rose baubles. 

Nazir sold 20 baubles at £25 each in the run up to Mother’s Day and Eid to aid the Rosemere Cancer Foundation. He used his own pocket money to buy preserved red roses, which he then set in glass baubles on a bed of moss, bunny tail and wheat grass.

Before putting each bauble into its own black velvet presentation bag, Nazir added a rose charm and a ribbon.

Mum artist Kulsoom said: “I am so proud of Nazir. He put so much time and effort into each bauble. He was adamant that he made the baubles entirely by himself.

“I lost my mum to cancer 10 years ago. She underwent treatment at Rosemere Cancer Centre.

"Both Nazir and I have previously been Rosemere Cancer Foundation volunteers. Nazir has helped with bucket collections on numerous occasions and now he has used his creativity to support the charity. We are very grateful to all his customers.”

Nazir has also raised funds making original duck feather pens for the Abu Faisal Trust school desks appeal.

Rosemere Cancer Foundation works to bring world class cancer treatments and services to cancer patients from throughout Lancashire and South Cumbria being treated at Rosemere Cancer Centre, which is the region’s specialist cancer treatment and radiotherapy centre at the Royal Preston Hospital.

It also works to assist at eight local hospital cancer units across the two counties, including those at the Royal Blackburn and Burnley General Teaching Hospitals.
