THE daughters of a knife crime victim paid tribute to their much-missed father after a fundraising event in his memory.

Pam Trott, sister-in-law of David Trott who was knifed down in his own home in Charlecote Road, Dagenham, in March, organised the clairvoyant fundraiser at the Candle of Light Spiritual Church last week.

She was joined by her daughter Kirsty and other regulars at the clairvoyant events, as well as Mr Trott's daughters Lisa, 33, Kelly, 32, and Julie, 29.

Julie Trott, who lives in Bromley, said: "It was brilliant. Everyone was so happy and the clairvoyants were really good.

"I want to thank my aunt Pat and my cousin Kirsty who organised it."

"It was a bit spooky but it was really good and comforting."

They managed to raise about �700, she said. The money will go to the Air Ambulance who tried to save David Trott's life after he was stabbed.

Julie said: "I was a daddy's girl, he brought me up.

"When it happened I was just in the middle of moving to Dagenham.

"When I heard about it I could not move down there anymore.

She added: "I was very devastated. It's a difficult time.

"He was a happy go lucky sort of guy. He had no anger in his body. He always tried to help people.

"It will haunt me for the rest of my life."

Her three children, Ebony, 6, Megan, 8, and Lewis, 11, and her two sisters' five children, are also suffering from the loss.

The killer, Gary Cartright, of Lillechurch Road, Dagenham, was jailed for at least ten years and nine months last month.
