£17,000 donation: Kate Winslet pays energy bill for sick girl in Scotland

Hollywood star Kate Winslet (47) is helping the family of a girl who has been seriously ill due to rising energy costs in Scotland. The British actress (“The Reader”) donated £17,000 (€19,400) to a fundraiser for 12-year-old Freya, the PA news agency reported on Saturday.

Tillicoultry’s girl is blind, unable to communicate and requires 24-hour home care and oxygen. Mother Carolyn Hunter (49) started collecting donations only a few days ago. She could not reduce energy usage because of Freya, she had justified her initiative. She is facing a bill for 2023 of £17,000, nearly double that, due to rising electricity and gas prices. Donations have already passed the £20,000 target. Caroline Hunter told the BBC: “When I heard about the money, I had tears in my eyes.

Later this year, the British broadcaster Channel 4 wants to show the film “I am Ruth”, in which Winslet plays with her daughter Mia Threapleton (22). The Oscar winner also co-wrote the film, which deals with mentally ill youth in the UK.
