A family fun day in memory of Katie Rough has raised more than £1400.

Hundreds of people supported the event in York, which featured face-painting and games - and some rather exotic animals.

The money will be divided between local charities, as well as going towards a memorial for seven year old Katie, who died last month after being found with severe injuries on a playing field in the Woodthorpe area of the city.

Some of the money donated today will also go to local children's charities, York Mind and The Island.
