Flo says that she loves helping people and this is her way of contributing to British footballer Marcus Rashford's campaign to end child food poverty in the UK

Flo said,  "I saw it on the news and I thought, that's lovely." 

"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."

The old lady added, "People always ask me for my recipe, or ask me what my secret is. But there's no secret, it's 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."

The grandma's most famous dish is the cherry pie, but she is also a pro in baking savory options including steak.

Her son Graham Osborne, 58 speaking about his mom's kindness said: "I've always been proud of her. She's great, and she's been doing amazing.

"I grew up with her baking, so I think I kind of took it for granted. But I think what she's been doing is brilliant, it's really excellent.

"Even now, at almost 90, if I turned around to her and said, 'Do you think you could bake 20 pies today?', she wouldn't flinch.
