Skye Hall

First published in News

The funeral for Skye Hall, who died last week after fighting a brain tumour for a year, will be held tomorrow.

The five-year-old’s parents have said they’re keeping details of the service under wraps to keep numbers down, because so many people want to say farewell to the lad, with mum Sally saying: “We are a bit worried how many people are coming as it is.”

The acting headteacher Rush Common Primary School, Laura Brown said: “Skye will be remembered for his sparkling smile, wonderful sense of humour, bravery, determination and his inspirational attitude.”
