The parents and sisters of 11-year-old Rosie Perry Jones handed out the prizes at the Lyme Lifeboat Week pavement artists’ competition, which was dedicated to her memory.

Rosie, who had entered and won the contest a number of times, died from ovarian cancer last year.

The Nottingham school she was about to attend held a non-uniform day, with a seaside theme, and sold cakes and held other activities to raise funds for Lyme Regis RNLI because she always loved her many family holidays in the town.

A spokeswoman for the school said: “Rosie had very happy memories of Lyme Regis and loved the lifeboat.”

Rosie’s mum, Diane, dad Guy and sisters Jessica and Millie were also presented with a gift during their visit to the town – an embroidered heart, bearing Rosie’s name made by the organiser of the competition, Tammy Garner.
