An 11-year-old who started off selling cakes and lemonade in her front garden, is now in her fifth year raising money for the Devon Air Ambulance Trust.

However for the past two years, Izzy Martin, from Malborough, has done a 10-mile sponsored walk instead.

Along with her parents and grandparents, Izzy walked from Malborough to Soar and over the cliff paths to Hope Cove and back to Malborough.

Izzy would like to thank everyone who helped to raise the £800 this year, adding to her total of just over £1,500 over the years.

Izzy’s mum, Hayley Pepperell, said: “Izzy decided to raise money for the air ambulance because she often sees them land in the playing fields near our house.”

Last year, Izzy was asked to turn on the new landing lights for the air ambulance at Malborough playing fields for the first time. These lights enable the air ambulance to land at night.

Izzy said: “Thank you to everyone who has supported and helped me raise the sponsor money.”
