AN appeal has been launched to help an Eastbourne family after a dad of four died on Christmas Day.

Rainbow Wishes wants to help the family.

It has posted: “We have been made aware of a family in Eastbourne who have had a terrible year.

The young family have seen many losses with an absolutely heartbreaking passing coming on Christmas Day.

Russell was dad to 4 children and had only just recently married his wife but sadly lost his battle with cancer on Christmas Day.

We would really like to be able to give the family something positive to look forward to, so are asking for your help to raise funds that will enable us to send them on a break away, once covid allows.

Please if you can spare even just £1, it really will help!”
