A young Go-kart racer has given back to the community by using old spare tyres and creating them into hand made planters to donate to the community.
Catherine Potter, aged just 12 from Bowburn, along with her family, make planters in the shapes of strawberries and swans out of her recycled tyres from her kart.
Catherine along with her dad, David, 40, mam Emma, 34, brothers and sisters, Rebecca, 10, Thomas, eight and Elizabeth, aged six, have donated the planters to the elderly who are isolating, the vulnerable and to care homes in the area.
The family have donated hanging baskets to Bowburn Care Home, wooden planters as well as plants for the residents at Belmont Grange Care Home. They also donated a clock, swans pots and a mirror to the Air Ambulance for them to auction off.
After creating the swan planters, the family plant mint leaves to help take away the smell of hand sanitiser and flowers to improve mental health.
The County Durham family have made different shapes such as swans, strawberries, table lamps, clocks from the old tyres.
