The fundraising page, created by Lesley Hallsworth, states: “This is a fundraiser to ensure our beautiful girl Jordan gets a wonderful send off, and to help with supporting her wonderful son, Riley Jay Harrison.”

A family friend, who asked not to be named, said: “Jordan really was a lovely very funny person, who loved life and lived it to the fullest. There was never a dull moment with her.”

She said Jordan’s son Riley Jay was just one year and eight months old.

The gofundme appeal has already passed the £700 mark within hours of being set up, and people have been paying tribute on the fundraising page.
