A tribute will be held in memory of Harriet Shelley in Clevedon at the weekend.
Harriet – the sister of former boy band member and X Factor contestant George Shelley – was struck by a car while on a night out in Bristol on April 28, but died of severe head injuries at Southmead Hospital one week later.

So far more than £1,200 has been raised for the hospital’s intensive care unit by family and friends in Harriet’s name.
Their next memorial event will be held at the Salthouse Fields, in Salthouse Road, on Saturday, when a blossom tree will be planted and bio-degradable balloons will be released.
Harriet’s mum, Toni Harris, said: “We are touched that so many people have so far donated to Harriet’s fundraising page – especially people who never met her.
“It shows just how many lives she touched during her life.”
