The Chesterfield community is rallying around the family of the late Sarah Freckingham.
Fourteen-year-old Sarah sadly died suddenly and was found in the bedroom of her home on St Augustine’s Road earlier this month.
Following the tragedy, generous residents have come together to help support her relatives.
On Friday, pupils at Spire Nursery and Infant School, Spire Junior School, Whitecotes Primary Academy and Parkside Community School, where Sarah attended, took part in a non-uniform day.
They raised several hundred pounds which will be given to Sarah’s mother so she can buy a headstone for her much-loved daughter.
Gussie's Kitchen, based at St Augustine's Church, also raised £260 for Sarah's family this week.
Meanwhile, an online fundraising page has been set up to help Sarah’s parents.
Katie Duroe, who started the page, said: “Sarah’s death came as a massive shock to all who knew and loved her.
"I have set up the page to help Sarah’s family either with costs towards the funeral or for them to get something in Sarah’s memory.
"I can’t imagine what her family is going through.”
There are also collection boxes in local businesses, including Boythorpe Fryer.
