Appeal fund for children killed in fire nearly at target

Appeal fund for children killed in fire nearly at target”

Demi Pearson, 15, her eight-year-old brother Brandon and seven-year-old sister Lacie, died in the blaze on Monday.

A fundraising campaign to raise money for four children who perished in an arson attack in Salford has hit its £15,000 target within three days.

While their mother, 35-year-old Michelle Pearson was rescued from the fire, she remains in a drug-induced coma after suffering serious injuries.

Writing about the appeal, Ms Pearson's brother Matt wrote: "I am Michelle's brother and uncle of the kids".

Mr Pearson added: "They will all be buried together side-by-side".

In a statement, the family said: "We are dreading the day we have to tell [her] the very bad news about her babies".

He said: "She said she'd actually been to the housing that week and begged them to move her to a safe house or get her out of the area. they just refused - "you're not at risk, you're not in danger".

Two men and a woman appeared in court on Friday charged with murdering the siblings.

The defendants are also accused of arson with intent to endanger life and the attempted murder of the children's mother, Michelle Pearson, 35, and two juveniles who can not be named for legal reasons.

No pleas were entered as the trio were further remanded in custody ahead of their next scheduled appearance on March 9.
