Budding artist Olivia Pollock raised a generous donation of £100 for North Ayrshire Foodbank, after selling rainbow-themed origami hearts to her family and friends during lockdown.

Making the hearts in her free time at home, Olivia said: “I noticed all of the lovely rainbows going up in my street on everyone’s front windows and it inspired me to get out my pens and draw more to make people smile during lockdown.”

Olivia’s Dad, North Ayrshire Council employee, Chris Pollock couldn’t be prouder.

He said: “Olivia’s mum and I are extremely proud of her and her creative fundraising effort for the Foodbank.”

Craig Crosthwaite, North Ayrshire Foodbank Coordinator, said: “I would like to thank Olivia for her kind donation.

“The donation of £100 will help to provide us with enough supplies for 80 meals as we continue to provide a lifeline service to people who need it most.”
