The Charlotte Blackman Memorial Fund has been set up to help local charities and organisations that support and work with autistic and vulnerable children.


The fund total is currently at approximately £11,000 with events and fund raising activities planned for 2015.


Over £1000 has already been donated to The Derbyshire Autism Services Group, where Charlotte worked as a volunteer with young children on a one-to-one basis.


The 15 seater mini bus brought through the fund has been donated to Bennerley Hill Fields School.  More details here.
