Rachel Riley, 34, shared with her 662,5000 followers that a friend was raising money for a young boy named Keir with learning difficulties. His parents are currently unable to earn money needed for his round the clock health needs, due to lockdown halting their income.

Alongside the footage, she wrote: “Gut wrenchingly tough situation due to COVID, which also shows the lovely side of people, pulling together to help this family who needs it.”

So far the family has raised £21,385 of their £25,000 target.
