Forest of Dean called on to help Fuller children memorial fund
THE community spirit of those who prayed for the Fuller children is being called upon once more in the Forest of Dean.
Three months ago, former Lakers pupil Sam, 12, Rebecca, eight, and Charlotte Fuller, seven, were found dead in a disused Shropshire quarry, along with their father Ceri, 35.
A police inquiry found that no-one else was involved in their deaths.
The devastating tragedy sent shockwaves through the community, resulting in thousands of tributes being written on The Citizen's website and social media pages.

Now a memorial service, including a new bench, tree planting, and balloon release, has been arranged for people to remember the young Milkwall siblings, at Lakers School, in Five Acres, on October 28.
Grandmother Jacqueline Sabbatella, 46, has stepped in to help organise the memorial event, alongside the school, but the wish list is a big one.
Jacqueline's daughter Estelle Mundy, 14, who goes to Lakers, used to walk home from school with Sam.
"It was absolutely awful, it affected everyone at the school," said Jacqueline.
"Estelle is very mature for her age and she handled the situation really well, although of course she was extremely upset – as all the pupils were.
"But now we need some help with the memorial event."
Things needed for the service are plants (blue, purple and red ones – the children's favourite colours), refreshments, ribbons (blue, purple and red ones), two buckets, tea light candles and holders, 300 tie-on labels (blue, purple and red ones), plastic cups and plates, and a bench.
Jacqueline, who also has two sons and two grandchildren, said: "My daughter brought the list home and I thought, there's no way we are going to be able to get all that.
"We have been speaking to various people, trying to get it all together, but we could do with some extra help.
"I would be really keen to speak to anyone who could help supply anything for the memorial day."
If anyone can help, or wishes to donate any of the items on the list, they can call Jacqueline on 07887 710949 or 01594 832537.
The memorial service will start at 11am on October 28 and anyone wishing to pay their respects is welcome to attend.
