Raised by 504 people in 2 months
Friday 1st March the news broke that a 17 year old girl Jodie Chesney was killed by a fatal stab wound in a Park in Havering. She was the 18th person to die in London due to knife crime in the capital this year and the 5th teenager to die. The whole community are still trying to come to terms with this shocking event. As a local charity we want to support the family as much as we can to alleviate the financial stress on this young lady's funeral. We are in contact with the family and police liaison officer and have agreed to support them with the cost of the funeral arrangements. Once a funeral directors have been chosen we will be writing a cheque to cover the costs.  We are aware that the local community will want to help with this appeal so as well as making a financial donation towards this from our own account we have set this page up for anyone who wishes to support the family further. If anyone has any questions regarding the change in Gofundme page please email info@smilelondonessex.com or contact us via Facebook and Twitter

On behalf of our charity and the family we would like to personally thank every single person who has donated to this fund.
Jodie had a beautiful send off, a church filled with family, friends and the local community.
This was follows by a purple themed wake where people stood for hours sharing stories of Jodie.

Together to raised £25,000 we will now be ending this fund. The funeral has now been fully paid for and the remaining money is being transfer to the family to pay for memorial items and cover their day to day costs as her parent have been unable to work since this tragedy.
