“The kids are hurting really badly, it is not going to be the same without him.

“Leon has been coming here for a long time, he has been here longer than me, over three years.”

The centre has set up a fundraising page to help fund the costs of the funeral for the family.

They had a target of £2,000 and have already exceeded the amount with more money coming in.

Flowers have been laid in tribute to Leon Hoyle from Lancaster.

“The family have only just had a funeral, if we can help in anyway we can we will,” said Rebecca.

“The Priory have said they will off free service if this is needed, the family are just in bits.”
