AROUND 200 friends and family turned out to remember 17-year-old Jayden Parkinson at a thanksgiving service last night. 

They packed All Saints Church in Didcot, and celebrated Jayden's life. 

And more than 100 white balloons were released in memory of Jayden at the church where the missing girl’s body was found last month.

Jayden’s mother Samantha Shrewsbury and sister Sharday George were among those to say words at the service on Saturday afternoon. 

The service included tributes and songs from Jayden’s former classmates at Didcot Girls’ School.
