Little Maia Rose Elizabeth Swales-Dawson was just 18 months old when she passed away, but her family have now started fundraising in her name.

As part of this, a family fun day will be held this Sunday at Todmorden Climbing Skool, Vale Street.

There will be plenty to enjoy on the day and organiser Georgina Lindley is asking for any bands able to provide live entertainment to contact her on 07760755012.

Raffles tickets have also been sold and money raised will help to purchase a memorial bench for Maia.

Sofie Netherwood, 25, Maia’s auntie, thanked the community for its “amazing” support, saying: “It really brings back your faith in humanity.”
