A MUM, whose baby daughter died three years ago, has donated more than 84 presents and 30 collection boxes to families struggling this Christmas in her memory.

Two-year-old Olivia Mae Conway died on November 13, 2016, from sepsis due to complications with a bone marrow transplant she needed after being diagnosed with severe aplastic anaemia.

Her mum Charlene Harrison, from Eccleston, has been determined to make sure her daughter's memory lives on, and her latest goal has been to help other families going through a difficult time this Christmas.

Charlene, 37, said: "Olivia never wanted for anything in life and every time she was in hospital generous people would bring numerous gifts and toys in for her and the other children.

"I know that Olivia would want to give something back to other families so in her memory we have donated 84 presents and 30 selection boxes to families struggling this Christmas.

"We have dropped them off at St Teresa Of Avila Church, Devon Street as this is Olivia’s local church.

"We know the amazing staff will send them onto Father Christmas so that he can deliver them on time for Christmas Day.

"Olivia will be made up to see all the children’s faces on Christmas Day. I am sure she will be looking down from heaven."

Olivia's family hope to do this every Christmas going forward in her memory.
