A FUN day in memory of a 14-year-old girl who died from a drug overdose was described as a ‘success’ by her family.

The event took place to remember Megan Hoyle, a student at St Bede’s RC High School, who died in February.

Money was being raised for Sheffield Children’s Hospital Intensive Care Unit, where Megan was cared for before her death.

There was a variety of activities to take part in at the Green Lane Community Centre.

These included face painting, archery, mini golf, two tombolas and a large raffle.

Lee Charnley, Megan’s brother, said his sister would have loved the day.

He said: “Megan loved getting involved with things and I could imagine her wanting to play her part in something like this.

“It was great to see so many people turn up at the weekend, there was too many to count.

“It’s great to see our community help us with this.

“I don’t think we will properly come to terms with Megan’s death.

“Death is a natural thing in life but normally you expect it to come when you’re in your 80s or 90s, towards the end of your life.

“It still feels quiet surreal.”

During her inquest held last month, Megan was described as an intelligent and highly articulated girl by the coroner at the time, Michael Singleton.

Her organs were donated and she managed to save the lives of four other people.

Bob Tunffnell, Megan’s grandfather, said: “It has definitely been a success, all the money we raise will be going towards a great unit who did their best with Megan.

“Megan was a very popular girl and it shows by the large amount of people who came today.

“Lots of her friends and their families came along.”

Paul Boardman, a family friend of Megan’s, said: “It was a really good day.

“Everyone still gets very upset, but events like this bring people together.”
