Jasmine Forrester murder: Fundraising page set up to help 11-year-old's family
More than £3,000 has been raised for the family of schoolgirl Jasmine Forrester who was stabbed to death in Wolverhampton.
Jasmine, 11, was found at a home in Kent Road on Friday, February 9 with serious head injuries. She was rushed to hospital but died later that day.
Her uncle Delroy Forrester has been charged with her murder and has a provisional trial date set for August 13.
A colleague of Jasmine's mother's has since set up a Just Giving Crowdfunding page to help the young girl's family with the costs that have come with her death.
