A fundraising campaign has been launched to help the family of little two year-old Ronan McGavigan who was knocked down and killed in Derry on Sunday.

The amount of money raised has surpassed the target set by more 150 per cent and at the time of publishing this article more than £2,600 had been donated.

“I’m setting up this page in the hope that it will help his family with any expenses that may arise within the coming weeks,” said Tina on the JustGiving.com page.
