A GOREBRIDGE mother has succeeded in raising enough funding to publish a book aimed at helping young children through bereavement.

Elke Barber (37), achieved her £8000 funding target in just 20 days, which will allow her to press ahead with plans to print Is Daddy Coming Back In A Minute?

She used the crowdfunding method via the Bloom venture catalyst website to seek donations for the book, which is based on conversations she had with her son, Alex.
