Christ! How humbling. Compare this little angel with Tilern DeBique.

How moving that a young girl with problems of her own would do this.

I suspect that a girl showing so much drive and energy at this age will end up being very successful at something when she grows up.

What a remarkable little girl and a humbling story.

I wonder how much she realises her help for the young lads in HC comes from her just enjoying life to the max, with out including all the money she has raised.

And it is also likely she gets a lot from the lads in terms of encouragment.

I wonder if she will grow up with a number of big 'brothers'?

Apt and too the point, and a sentiment one can agree with. Not sure if most civvies would appreciate the esteem she is held in by your good self mind :D

What an absoulte wee angel & superstar. Sincerley hope that she is given an award at the next Sun Milllies award and gets to meet some Pop Star or famous person to formally thank her. Her parents must be so proud & rightly so. Would like to see her been given a Green Lid & Wings. Hope that young Lydia has a rapidly growing collection of Teddy Bears & Choccies from her fan club.

Here is a link to her Just Giving page. Lets all give her a wee bung & send messages of support.

I do hope this shames the Government because our injuried soldiers, airmen and sailors have to rely on such a brave young lady to help them get back to a normal life after sacrificing so much for their country.

Hats off to Miss Cross.

what a kid, but her Grandfather was a WO in the 17/21st Lancers so she has an impeccable background

I think I know her grandad - if its the same guy I'm thinking of then it's no surprise that his family have raised such a brave and kind child.

What a great kid - I wish her every success.

What an absolute trooper, as has been said she is an inspiration to many.

I will pass the info around some other respectable forums I frequent and try and drum up some more support.
