A fund set up in the wake of the death of a little girl from Hadleigh has reached the £7,000 mark.

Rosa Simon, three, died in a tragic accident in June when she was hit by a car as she scootered on the pavement immediately outside her house in Canterbury Gardens.

To reflect her love of music, her family set up the Rosa Simon Music Fund.

It aims to buy new musical instruments and tuition for schools, playgroups, churches and registered childminders in the area.

Paul Simon, Rosa’s father, said: “Thanks to the awe-inspiring generosity of so many good people, we are now in a position to start spending the money.

“But we want to spend it where there is the most need, so we have invited local schools, churches and playgroups to a meeting on September 23 at 5pm in the Community Room at Hadleigh URC to discuss what they want.”
