How much has Heather’s GoFundMe page raised now?

Heather’s sister-in-law started the page to raise money for Heather’s big farewell party.

Money raised will also give Heather peace of mind that her teenage sons will be cared for after she’s gone.

As we went to press, the total raised had almost reached £14,000.

That’ll be one hell of a party, Heather!
