‘My four sales made £713, which is brilliant news.’

However, Elizabeth is now setting her sights even higher, with plans set in stone to abseil down the Spinnaker Tower on August 5.

She said: ‘This is the first time I have done an abseil, but I did a skydive last year.

‘It is just something that my niece and I thought we should do.

‘I am really excited, our national charity figure is at £57,000 so it would be nice to hit £60,000.

‘The Big Match splits the money between the two charities – we have recently heard that The Brain Tumour Charity has helped three children’s parents to get their kids the treatment they need.’
