Epilpesy Action are holding a collection in Asda in Bexleyheath today, two days after Bexleyheath Academy schoolgirl Jamie-Leigh Lynch died from a suspected epileptic fit.

The 15-year-old died on Wednesday after being rushed to King’s College Hospital in Denmark Hill. She is the second pupil to die suddenly in four months after Philip Lamin suffered a cardiac arrest in February.

Tributes poured in after the news broke. The school’s principal Carl Wakefield said: “Jamie-Leigh Lynch was a fantastic, warm-hearted girl who made everyone who knew her happy with her brilliant sense of humour.

“She had many excellent friendships here. Jamie loved life, participating in events, school trips and was addicted to sport and working in P E.

“She will be greatly missed by everyone who knew her. Our thoughts and prayers are very much with her family and friends at this very difficult and challenging time.”

A number of her friends paid tribute to Jamie-Leigh Lynch on Twitter.

@chloemunson said: “RIP Jamie-Leigh Lynch, my best friend, sleep tight girl. Never forgotten.”

@Anastasiaaz added: “I can’t believe this, RIP Jamie Leigh Lynch.”
