The Central Lancaster High School pupil died on Monday (August 7) after falling through a roof on Lune Industrial Estate.

“We are just reeling, in shock,” said Rebecca Novell, manager of Marsh Community Centre.

“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.”

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

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.

“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 offer a free service if this is needed, the family are just in bits.”
