A fundraising campaign on the crowdfunding site JustGiving has more than quadrupled its initial fundraising target of £1,500.

A page was set up yesterday to collect donations in memory of the three-year-old who died on Gorleston beach on Sunday.

Ava-May was taken to the James Padget Hospital after being thrown from an inflatable trampoline.

Her family are hoping to place a child’s bench in memory of Ava-May in a park in Somersham.

Last night Ava-May’s family paid tribute to her, saying that her “smile could light up even the darkest of rooms.”
