A three-year-old girl has been sampling adult life in lockdown in a series of cute photo shoots for charity.

Luna Trenerry has posed while putting on make-up, lifting weights and "working from home" for the 21-day challenge.

Mum Beth, a florist from Consett, County Durham, said Luna was loving her starring role.

The pair have so far raised more than £3,000 for Down's syndrome group Together 21.

Based in Newton Aycliffe, the charity has supported Luna and other children with the condition.

Ms Trenerry said donations were "essential to keep our group going" as it had lost a lot of funding due to the pandemic.

Ms Trenerry said she wanted the photos to "be funny and show Luna doing the stuff us adults are doing". Chores and exercise have been among the scenarios dreamt up by the pair

Ms Trenerry, who is expecting her second daughter in July, said Luna "hasn't got a clue" about the coronavirus lockdown.
