More than 100 people are expected to take part in a sponsored skate in memory of a little girl who lost a battle with cancer.

Issabelle Futter, pictured here in her last school photograph at St Thomas More School in Grenoside, died last December aged just seven.

The youngster – described by her parents as a ‘smiling sunflower’ – had battled neuroblastoma for three years, with various types of treatment.

On Sunday her parents, relatives, friends and supporters will each skate 2,766 laps – one for each day Issabelle was alive – at iceSheffield in Attercliffe.

The sponsored event will boost funds for a charity in Issabelle’s name that will help other families of children with cancer to make special memories.

Issabelle’s mum Wendy, of Parson Cross, said: “Every penny will go into the fund and all we are asking people to raise is either £10 sponsorship or donate £10.”
