Dear Editor,

MY DAUGHTER Chloe was asking last year for a Nintendo Wii. I jokingly suggested if she gave up chocolate for a month I would increase her pocket money so she could save up for it.

She suggested giving it up for a year and, foolishly, I agreed. With family and friends promising her money, she had a total of £250 promised.

But she was nine years old at the time and we were confident our money was safe!

Today, her year was up. She took great delight in eating her Cadbury’s Dairy Milk in front of me. I had tried to make her quit at Easter and on her birthday. I am very proud of her.

But Chloe stunned us this morning, because she has decided to give her money to the Downs Syndrome Association. Our baby son Jude, born in September, has Downs and Chloe is just the most loving big sister you could wish for.
