UPDATE: This appeal is no longer active and any money donated has been refunded. 

A FUNDRAISER has been launched to replace an angel headstone for a three-year-old boy after it was smashed by vandals.

The family of Jamie Coppinger went to visit his grave in Camborne Cemetery Tuesday and found the angel headstone they'd put up in his memory had been destroyed.

Family friend Virginia Mutton has now organised a gofundme page to raise money for the family to replace the headstone.

Posting on the fundraising page, she said: "On the ninth of November Ian Coppinger and his family suffered another loss.

"They lost their beloved son 3year old Jamie to dilated cardiomyopathy and upon going to the Camborne churchyard today (9/11/2021) they noticed their son's headstone was smashed and unfixable.

"As a member of the public it's disgusting and I for one want to help.

"No parent should have to endure the horror of their child's stone destroyed by disrespectful individuals."
