Lily makes the jump for Heart Foundation

NINE-year-old Lily Anning (pictured) has skipped her way to be the fifth highest fundraiser in Australia for the Heart Foundation’s Jump Rope for Heart.

Lily raised more than $3000 through a jump off day at Rosetta Primary School, as well as through selling lemons, cakes, slices and flowers, and an online auction.

Lily said Jump Rope for Heart was a great way to help raise funds for heart research and programs that saved lives.

“I started skipping four years ago and then I got into raising money the last three years which is really good,” she said.

“It’s important to raise money to help people get their hearts better.

“I’ve enjoyed learning new tricks and it’s good for your heart.”

Lily received help in her fundraising efforts from family friends Katrina Pailthorpe and Anne Howlett.

The cause was close to the heart for Mrs Pailthorpe, whose mother and husband had both had heart surgery.
