A fundraising night in memory of a Watton teenager who died in a car crash will be taking place next month.

Annabel's mother Angela Calton, from Saham Hills, said: 'She would have loved the fundraiser. She loved a good party and socialising. The charities are two good causes and anything we can do to raise money for them will be brilliant.'

She added that her daughter enjoyed spending time with children and was passionate about helping people.
