Friends say Amy Jayne faced a brave battle with mental health issues and they want to give her a Disney-themed funeral or memorial bench

"Sadly our lovely, caring and cheeky friend, Amy Jayne, passed away at the age of 23 on 13th September 2018.

"Amy had been extremely brave through a long battle with mental health issues and regrettably, due to lack of funding, she hadn't been given the support she asked for many times through our health system.

"Unfortunately there are no funds in place to give Amy the send-off that she deserves.

"We now need your help to organise a happy, colourful, Disney-themed funeral to celebrate her life.

"Contributions will either be made towards this or a memorial such as a bench in one of Amy's favourite places.

"Anything you can give, however big or small, would be greatly appreciated".
