A usually chatty nine year old kept tight-lipped for a whole 12 hours in the name of charity.
Jenny Dallimore, of St Albans completed a 12 hour sponsored silence in aid of Keech Hospice House, who help care for her 10 year old cousin, Rosie Snell.
Rosie was born with Tetraplegic Cerebral Palsy after complications at birth, and relies on the help of Keech often.
Jenny volunteered to do the sponsored silence herself, after seeing the essential support they provide to her cousin.
Rosie, who also has epilepsy, is tube fed, visually impaired and relies on Keech for support.
