Perhaps this has touched me more, since becoming interested in trying to run and understanding what fun and excitement this young girl got from running and all the fundraising she was raising.
As a Mother and Grandmother, while I was making a small donation on her Justgiving page, I was feeling so numb, wondering what her family must be feeling, the devastation and pain they are going through, together with the fact that her young brother died from an overdose at the age of 25.
The following is a quote:
"They urged people to continue making donations on her Just Giving website, which has received more than £500,000 in donations. Just Giving said it would also donate its fee of around £18,000 to the charity.
The website also confirmed Claire's page had attracted the largest number of donations ever received in a single day since Just Giving was launched 12 years ago.
I don't think it is inappropriate to put the link here:
