A fundraising campaign has been launched to pay for a grieving schoolgirl to go to Disneyland Paris after she bravely tried to save her mum’s life.

Little Grace Arrowsuch, seven, raised the alarm for emergency services after she found her mum Carol was not breathing while in bed one morning.

Paramedics rushed to the scene in Park Road, Swinton, but the 28-year-old mum could not be revived. It was later established she died from a condition that causes sudden death in adults.

Before her death, she wanted to take her daughter to Disneyland Paris. Family and friends are now trying to raise £3000 to put a smile back on little Grace’s face and make her dream trip a reality.

Grace’s grandmother Sharon Gray, 50, of Park Road, Swinton, said: “She was so brave on that horrible morning. My daughter had epilepsy and she had a button for RotherCare which alerts emergency services. Grace had the presence of mind to push that so paramedics came and she also rang me.”

Carol died on March 26 and family members said a post mortem ruled she died from Sudden Adult Death Syndrome.

A fundraising day has been arranged to take place at the Park View pub in Swinton on Monday, August 25.

There will be a family fun day with various attractions, games, a barbecue and bouncy castle from noon to 4pm. A charity night will follow from 7pm and includes live music.
