Firstly, we would like to thank the whole community for the overwhelming response we have received since our world came crashing down around us when our beautiful Dolly left our family.

May we please ask for some time to celebrate the life of our much-loved daughter Dolly. This is all we are capable of at the moment and ask for your respect to give us time to grieve.

Our daughter Dolly was the kindest, caring, beautiful soul and she was always caring for animals, small children, other children at boarding school who were less fortunate than herself.

Out of all the sadness that the loss of our daughter has brought to our lives, we feel that through losing Dolly we would like to help other families by making an awareness of bullying and harassment that some people are sadly subject to.

Our vision is to establish a trust called "Dolly's Dream". Through this trust we would hope to raise awareness around bullying, anxiety, depression and youth suicide.

Before Dolly died, she completed a drawing and wrote the words "Stand up, speak even if your voice shakes". This powerful message tells the dark, scary place our beautiful angel had travelled to.

We are not concerned with the who or why of who pushed our daughter to this point, we just want to save another family going through the sadness and tragedy that our family is experiencing.

Stop Bullying, Be Kind, Do It For Dolly.
