Chesham mum can finally be laid to rest

Thanks to your generosity, a mum from Chesham can be laid to rest.

We told you on Tuesday afternoon about how Emma Smith's family has been waiting to get her ashes because of outstanding costs.

Now, their £750 target has been hit thanks to generous donations.

Last night, an anonymous donor gave the family £350, on top of other funds already given.

Earlier on, organiser of the fundraiser, Briony Slade, said:

Thank you everyone so much for all your generous donations! I never thought we might actually be able to reach the target but thanks to each and every person, we’re already halfway.

My cousins are so happy they will finally be able to have their mum close to them, I can’t thank you enough.

Not long after that, they hit their target.
