A KIND-HEARTED young girl from Deeside has been selling toys online and from a market stall to help raise over £800 for charity.

Six-year-old Aminah El Haj Ahmed ran her very own market stall selling sensory toys at Connah’s Quay Christmas Market at the cricket club.

Aminah, who attends Wepre primary school, initially set up shop after dad Richard suggested it as a way of raising money for a trip to Disneyland Paris.

But Richard says that Aminah wanted the money to go towards children less fortunate than her and chose to support the Make A Wish Foundation.

He said: "Being someone in business my self, Aminah has always had a good little business head on her.

"Aminah liked to collect Poppits and Squishmellow toys. She asked me could we open a shop and at first I said it wouldn't be possible to open just a shop selling Poppits. But then the idea come to me that we could open an online shop selling on Facebook market place and a stall at Connah's Quay Christmas market.

"I told Aminah she could keep the profit and put it to her Disney spends but she insisted she wanted to give the money to helping sick and/or disadvantaged children. The response she gave me made us as parents very proud."

For stock, Richard went shopping at a Manchester warehouse, returning with boxes of fidget balls, poppit purses, Tik Tok bags, Squid Game keyrings and Yoda plushies.

Aminah has so far collected a total of £803 from sales and donations to her Poppy Poppits enterprise on behalf of the Make A Wish Foundation and hopes to raise £1,000 in total.

The charity makes dreams come true for children fighting life-threatening conditions.

It has sent Aminah badges, stickers and a letter of thanks for what’s she’s done, saying it was "blown away" by her "incredible generosity at the age of six".

Richard added: "We started off with a small amount of stock but week on week purchased more as we had a great first week. We are continuing to sell stock now to raise as much money as we can for make a wish children's charity.

"Aminah has put others before her self and it has made us very proud of her."
