A teenager who made 1,000 paper cranes for good luck is to donate most of them to the hospital where she is recovering.
Sophie Aldred, 15, was introduced to origami while at Bristol Royal Hospital for Children by a member of staff.
She said: “I needed to do some form of origami, so I thought I’d do one thousand cranes – apparently it’s good luck in Japan and it felt like that’s what I needed at the moment.”
Sophie took three-and-a-half days to make all 1,000 cranes with some help from her family.
Mother Katrin Chichester said: “This got us through a tough week and really brought the family together.
Sophie, from Bristol, has been in hospital for around five weeks and is said to be recovering well.
