Bobbi has been selling bags of golf balls to help her school.

Clever Bobbi Robinson, who is just five, hit upon the idea to raise cash to help her school.

And her efforts have already raised more than £300 for Owston Park Primary.

Mum Maz says Bobbi began collecting when the family took their dogs for a walk on the outskirts of Owston Hall golf club.

She said: “Having collected a huge amount of golf balls, we needed a outlet.

"So we washed and dried each one and went and asked for permission to sell them at the course to raise funds for Bobbi's school."

The club agreed and Bobbi spent two hours each day during the Easter holidays selling bags of balls.

She added: “All the teachers at Bobbi's school are super impressed.”

Bobbi’s efforts have so far seen her hand over cheques of £250 and £60 to her school.
