The family of a seven year old girl who died following a collision in Collingbourne Ducis have paid tribute to her.

Eloise Jackson died following a collision on the A338 Church Street last Tuesday - 13 July - evening. 

Parents Laura and James and older sister Anaiis said: "We cannot thank you enough, our wonderful friends, family and the community for supporting us through this terrible time.

“You are helping to create a legacy for Eloise that she would have been incredibly proud of.

“She loves, and still loves her pony, horses are a fundamental part of her existence. Therefore, as a family we have decided to donate the money to Greatwood, a charity which uses former racehorses to educate disadvantaged children and young adults with special educational needs.

“Eloise hated the thought of anyone struggling and found great comfort being around horses.

“How can we describe our Eloise? Her nickname was 'fizzy' as she had such a bubbly personality, full of life and laughter, love and giggles.

“The work has only just begun, with your help some good can come out of this tragic situation. Much love Laura, James and Anaiis xxx”

The family have asked that any donations in Eloise's memory are made to the charity Greatwood via the following fundraising page: https://gofund.me/58afb601
