A JUSTGIVING page has raised more than £3000 for the family of an Anglesey woman who died from a brain haemorrhage.

Joanne Leach collapsed whilst exercising in her home in Morawelon, Holyhead on January 25.

The 46-year-old mother-of-three was working out on her exercise bike following a nap, before collapsing suddenly.

Her partner of thirty years, Justin Beilinsohn had managed to resuscitate her but she was then airlifted to Glan Clwyd Hospital before dying later the same day after doctors were unable to save her. An MRI scan later revealed Ms Leach had suffered a brain haemorrhage.

Her niece, Nichole Thomas, set up a fundraising page to help raise money for her family. She initially set a target of £1000, but it has since tripled.

She says the campaign has been created as a way to keep everyone up-to-date with plans, and also offer a place for messages and donations to be left.

Ms Leach's partner Justin Beilinsohn is grateful for the community's response to her passing.

"I've been totally amazed by how generous everyone in the community has been and I really cannot thank them enough," he said.

"When she died, it came as a total shock to us all as there were no warning signs. Life will never be the same again without her.

"One of my fondest memories of Joanne is when she came up Snowdon for the first time. She made us all laugh the whole way to the top. She was someone who never stopped smiling and always put others first."

An outpouring of shock and sadness came from within the community following the death of Ms Leach, with many taking to social media to express their condolences to her family.

Local football clubs Hoyhead Town, Holyhead Hotspur and Caergybi all held a minutes silence before their matches and several members of the close community and beyond have donated to Nichole's fundraiser.

As well as Mr Beilensohn, Ms Leach, who was originally from Salford, leaves behind her three children Farrah, 21, Jorgia, 20, and Jensen, 18.

In the past, she had worked as a hairdresser at Hairways in Holyhead and worked at the MEM factory for several years too.

Ms Leach was later a part of the kitchen staff at Ysgol Llanfawr in the Town for 14 years before eventually becoming a carer for dementia patients at the Caledonia Residential Home.

Her funeral service was held at St. Cybi's Church in Holyhead on February 4.
