A teenager who has already raised more than £5,000 for various charities has vowed to continue her quest to change more people's lives.

Tia has been selling hand-made jewellery from her website Tia's Treasures for seven years to help raise money for people who suffer with epilepsy.

Tia Hutchinson, 13, from Gorleston first started raising money to fund a seizure alarm for her one-year-old brother Toby when he was diagnosed with epilepsy.

The alarm allowed her parents to sleep at night safe in the knowledge they would be alerted should he have a seizure.

Her Mum, Lisa Hutchinson described the alarm as life-changing.

Her fundraising efforts have included a raffle, sales of her hand-made jewellery from Tia’s Treasures and the setting up of a JustGiving page called Help Tia To Help Others.

She has now set her sights on a new target after her brother’s epileptic seizures have started to change.

Toby is now suffering more seizures at night, therefore, she is hoping to raise enough money to buy him a PulseGuard - a more reliable alarm.

The heart rate monitors are available to hire at £30 a month.
