Laura's Helping Hand

Laura, five, steps out to support Madeleine's Fund

Charlotte Cox
June 23, 2011

A little girl has been so touched by the story of missing Madeleine McCann that she's on a solo mission to help find her.

It began when Laura Keay, five, saw her mum reading the book, Madeleine, Kate McCann's story of the family's ordeal after her three-year-old daughter disappeared on holiday in Portugal in 2007.

Laura's mum Caroline Dumville, 45, said: "She saw the picture of Madeleine on the front and asked me what it was all about so I explained.

"In the picture she's a similar age to Laura so it really hit home.

"She was very upset. She immediately emptied her piggy-bank and asked me to send the money to help Madeleine."

Then Laura, who lives with her mum and dad Andrew, 49, and sister Isla, three, wondered how she could raise more money.

"I suggested she do a sponsored walk and try to find people to sponsor her," added Caroline, who runs Primrose Cottage Nursery.

"It's quite thoughtful for someone that age to be bothered. I suppose I relate too, because I have two young girls and if something like that happened it would be a nightmare."

So Laura will walk, with her mum, around The Carrs on Sunday, June 26.

Laura said: "I want to help Madeleine.

"I want to find her. It's very sad but if I help they will pay for more policemen, because they're all giving up."

All the money which Laura raises will be sent to the charity Madeleine's Fund: Leaving No Stone Unturned, the only organisation still actively searching for the McCanns' daughter.

Laura plans to write to Madeleine's parents when she sends her sponsorship money.

To sponsor Laura call 07770 897678.

That is lovely. What a lovely caring little girl.

My daughter (6) is waiting for Madleine to come home. She knows Madeleine is missing but she thinks Madeleine is lost. She has known about Madeleine since she was little, and just accepts it that she sees pictures of Madeleine around. Usually she asks when she sees a picture "Has Madeleine been found yet?".

When my daughter was smaller she thought Madeleine was her friend and when she was found, we would go to her house to play.

Laura is a sweet caring little girl. I wish her all the best.
