Talking about her hard work for the cause, Flo said: "I have been baking pies throughout lockdown to help vulnerable people in the community, and I love doing it. It keeps me going, and gives me something to do. But I thought, I would love to help the little ones, too."
Flo Osborne is an 89-year-old great-great-grandmother who makes pies to help those suffering from hunger. Recently, the kind woman got praised as footballer Marcus Rashford appreciated the efforts made out of kindness.
Flo shared that she can bake two or three pies in one go in her tiny kitchen in Harwich, Essex, but has made hundreds through lockdown for her community - and now many that will feed children over the half-term break. The woman can make around 20 pies in a day!
Recently, Manchester United's player, Marcus Rashford made a post on Twitter regarding Flo's kind deeds. The 22-year-old tweeted his appreciation for Flo to his 3.7 million followers. "I'm going to leave you with Flo because she is amazing," he wrote.
Rashford also retweeted on another Twitter account that is affiliated with his #EndChildFoodPoverty campaign. It later shared Flo's efforts with the world too.
"89 years old, baker Flo Osborne has thrown herself into pie-making during lockdown to help feed the hungry. My question is simple, what are you waiting for then? Help in any way possible. Flo is a true angel and a mother to many vulnerable. Thank you so much, ma'am," the account, named The Rashford Way, posted.
Talking about her hard work for the cause, Flo said: "I have been baking pies throughout lockdown to help vulnerable people in the community, and I love doing it. It keeps me going, and gives me something to do. But I thought, I would love to help the little ones, too. I've even been thinking about baking miniature pies for the children."
"Some people say I'm mad, but I just tell them that I love to help other people. If I can help them, I will. People always ask me for my recipe or ask me what my secret is. But there's no secret, it just comes naturally. I just mix the pastry up the way I want it to. I know what it should feel like so I go with that," she said.
I’m going to leave you with Flo because she’s amazing. Have a good night everyone ♥️ https://t.co/tWQ6iwqhHq— Marcus Rashford MBE (@MarcusRashford) October 28, 2020
Till now, Flo has made around 200 pies and all of them have been donated to community group North Essex Support Team, run by firefighter Les Nicoll.
"I'll keep on baking for as long as I can," Flo added.
