A fundraising appeal has been set up to help the family of 9-year-old Jaiden Gill, who tragically lost his life in a car crash on the A5117 last Sunday.
Wishing to give young Jaiden ‘the best sendoff ever,’ the Go Fund Me appeal, set up by friends of the family, aims to reach £4,000 to cover funeral costs and give his family “a helping hand in making his final journey all it can be with a little less worry.”
Jaiden, from Benchill, Wythenshawe, was travelling with his dad and 15-year-old brother when the car overturned close to Hapsford Services near Chester. Emergency services pronounced Jaiden dead at the scene just before 4pm. His brother and father remain in hospital.
The funding page was set up yesterday by Emily Mem Reavey and has already hit the £1,000 mark, with many tributes pouring in. She added, “anything you can give is going to be an amazing help, so thank you in advance everyone.
“We all know his mother would go above and beyond to make sure this happens anyway, but I feel we can all strive to make this happen with her.”
Cheshire Police are now appealing for witnesses in relation to the incident, or anybody with further information to get in touch by calling 101 and quoting incident number 640 of 31/7/2016. If you prefer, you can also contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
