KIND-hearted residents have raised thousands for a young woman who passed away recently.
Nikki Lay’s uncle, photographer Rob Lay started up a Justgiving page soon after her death.
Rob said: “My niece Nikki battled her whole life through pain and illness, never complaining. Sadly, on Monday 14th of November 2016 at 4:15am she passed away with her family around her at the young age of 20.
“My aim is to help my brother and Nikki’s mum raise funds to give Nikki the send off she deserves.
“As you can imagine funeral costs are not cheap and being 20-years-old, life insurance was the last thing on any young lady’s mind.
“Please if you could give a little this would help so much and family would be grateful
Sure enough, residents have now raised over £2,000 for Nikki.
Her funeral will be on December 19th.
