We are raising funds to make sure Paula has the send off she deserves, and that the many, many friends and family that loved her can come together to celebrate her life.
Paula was a star in so many people's lives and excelled in her own life after finding her love for dance. She will be deeply missed by friends and family and everyone within the international wheelchair dance community.
The funds raised will go directly to cover all the costs and administration for Paula's funeral and to make sure her beloved dog, Indie, is looked after in her retirement.
The family would ask for no flowers but donations to this cause.
Any additional funds raised will be donated to Strictly Wheels Foundation (Charity number 1164805) - the charity Paula co-founded with her dance partner Gary not long after their iconic performance on Britain's Got Talent. The charity was set up to promote wheelchair dancing in the UK along with providing free wheelchair dance classes in Manchester.
