AN enterprising Wirral schoolgirl has made the most of lockdown to produce soaps in aid of NHS charities.

Eva Butchart started out making a few bars of soap, using a kit that had been gathering dust on a shelf.

The 11-year-old, from Hoylake, enjoyed it so much she decided to set up a little soap-making business, taking orders from neighbours and friends.

A year six pupil at Our Lady of Pity Primary School in Greasby, she set up a Justgiving page and has donated all of the money made to NHS charities.

Her initial target was £100 but she has just doubled this, raising £200.

The Justgiving page is still open if any readers wish to order a soap and donate.

Proud mum Sam told the Globe today: "Eva created a soap menu with scents and colours, ordered The soap base, scents and colours online and has been making them to order over the last four weeks.

"We've had some great feedback on the soaps, with repeat orders from happy customers.

"It goes without saying that Eva has made us very proud by making a hobby she enjoyed into a little enterprise which will benefit others."
