Aw this is so sad, she was only 30 and gorgeous and did so many charitable things during her short life


From 400 to almost 250K since her death, Im having one of those 'Proud to be British moments' :lol:

Desperately sorry for her friends and family though :( RIP Claire

Terribly sad; and wonderful at the same time.
Her legacy will continue, thanks to those generous donors.

My condolences to her family and friends.
Such a lovely young woman.

RIP, Claire.

After tax breaks due to gift aid the total is well in excess of 500,000. Just a great reaction from the British public which is more than welcome when all we hear about is doom and gloom and how British society is finished. Clearly there are decent people out there after all.

But her poor family. :( Having lost a son to an overdose, to lose their daughter under these circumstances - running in his memory - must be beyond heartbreaking. Such a giving family who clearly do way above and beyond what most do. RIP Claire and sincere condolences to her family at this tragic time. I hope the public response is of some comfort to them.
