People are welcome to pop in to the reception of William Mitchell Funerals in High Street, Aldridge, to donate money between the opening hours of 8.30am to 5pm.

Mylee, aged eight, was stabbed to death on January 20 in Valley View, Brownhills.

The donation box inside the funeral firm is intended to help Mylee’s mother Tracey Taundry raise money for the children’s hospital.

Mylee was pronounced dead in hospital after being found with knife wounds at her father William Billingham’s bungalow.

He has been charged with her murder but is yet to enter a plea.

The funeral service, which is being led by William Mitchel Funerals, is due to take place on Tuesday April 24 at St James’s Church in Brownhills.

The eight-year-old’s mother has asked mourners to wear ‘all things bright and beautiful just as she was’.

She added: “Mylee was my angel, my true princess, she will have the send-off she deserves.”
