Earley children wash cars to raise money for dad's funeral

Four children from Earley have been washing cars and doing gardening to raise money for their father's funeral.

Mark Maynard, 52, died suddenly in July from undiagnosed cancers.

His family had no savings to pay for his funeral, so his four daughters have been fundraising to get a minimum of £2,500 to cover the costs.

One of his daughters, Bryony, said: "We don't know what the consequences are going to be if we don't get the money together."

Following a campaign on BBC South Today, the family has raised £3,100.
