Childhood friend Lauren Sharples has taken to Justgiving to raised funds to help with the care of Rosie Darbyshire’s son.

The 27-year-old’s body was found just off Pope Lane shortly after 2am on Thursday (7 February).

Preston Police said she had been subjected to a ‘brutal’ attack and a post mortem showed the aspiring model had died from head injuries.

Lauren Sharples said: “I’ve created this JustGiving page as a childhood friend sadly taken from her family and little boy in the early hours of the morning on 7 of February.

“Rosie was sadly brutally murdered, she was and is loved by many people and was such a shock to hear the sad news.

“Raising money to help her family and son to go towards her funeral and make her familys life’s a little less stressful as most of us know just how hard it is having to come to terms with a loved ones passing.”
