Jodie said: “Tim McDonald was a very good friend of mine, he [has] left behind a 13-year-old daughter.

“I’ve set up a GoFundMe to raise money for Olivia to spend on whatever she wishes.

“She was so close to her dad and had such a great bond with him.

“I really am just looking for some support to get this fundraiser properly off the ground.

“Olivia and her family have been local to Grantham since moving from Bottesford about 20 years ago.”

Olivia is now living with her grandmother.

Jodie hopes to raise £1,000 in the fundraiser and so far has collected £265. Jodie said the money would go towards funeral costs or whatever Olivia wishes.

“This young lady is battling with a lot right now,” she added.
