Loved ones of a young woman who committed suicide are helping disadvantaged children in her memory.

Chiara Donald, 20, formerly of Earls Colne, took her own life in January last year, having suffered anxiety and depression for a number of years.

Her father Iain Donald set up the Chiara Donald Foundation to raise money to give disadvantaged children in the Halstead area the chance to enjoy activities they may otherwise not be able to experience.

His goal is to buy a minibus for her former school, Ramsey College, Halstead, that all local youth groups can share and arrange private counselling for children suffering anxiety.
