A Donington teenager tragically killed in a road accident last month has continued to help her favourite charity - even through death.
Jess Danby, 19, was passionate about helping homeless people in Boston - and was in touch with the town’s Centrepoint Outreach before she was tragically killed. A collection was taken at her funeral and £979 raised, which will be split between the charity and Queens Medical Centre, Nottingham. Caffe Nero in Boston, where Jess worked, also donated an additional £500 in her name. Jess’ parents Dawn Ducker and Jim Danby visited the centre in Red Lion Street to present the cheque.
Centrepoint Outreach chief executive Liz Hopkins said: “We were really touched to learn we were Jess’ favourite charity.
“We are so grateful. The money will make a huge difference to the people we help at the charity - especially with the winter months upon us.”
