The website was in memory of their mum and sister and aim to raise money for Wood Green animal charity, which was close to their hearts.

The pair has so far raised £1,235 for the charity.

One of Charlotte’s close friends, Lauren Stevens said in tribute: “Charlotte, you have been one of my closest friend for nearly all my life.


“I have been so privileged to have such a kind hearted person in my life.

“Claire, you have always been so kind to me and it was always lovely to see your smile in the mornings before school.

“Two amazing women who will never be forgotten.”
