A YOUNG girl spent over two hours creating a unique plaque of support for the keyworkers working hard on the frontline fight against coronavirus.

Ava Whitby, 9, of Shotton spent two-and-a-half hours out of her day to create a rainbow wall as a sign of appreciation.

She coloured in the bricks of a wall on Butler Street with chalk for passersby to enjoy.

Mum Chelsey said: "Our front window is covered in pictures of rainbows and we were running out of things to do.

"All she does is makes crafts, she loves it and at first she wanted to do the inside garden wall, then all of a sudden came out with the idea of doing the street wall.

"Luckily we managed to get her some chalk when we went out to do our shop and she was able to do it.

"Bless her she was doing it for two-and-a-half hours. She got to about the fifth row then came in and had tea before going out to do more when her arm was hurting so I went and helped her.

"She's a little gentle giant, she's a kind soul and everyone walking past was saying how good it was.

"It makes her happy seeing everyone else smile so she's made up."

Ava aimed to have the wall finished in time for the national Clap for Carers event.
