The family of County Durham mother of three Donna Proudfoot have walked five miles in Bishop Auckland to raise funds to pay for her repatriation and funeral costs.
Mrs Proudfoot was taken ill during a holiday in Benidorm to celebrate her 50th birthday.
She suffered a bleed on the brain and was put into an induced coma, but passed away on Tuesday with her husband, John, by her side.
Watch @krisjepson's report here:
Mrs Proudfoot, who was known and loved for her community work, was not insured. Her treatment was covered by her European Health Insurance Card, but today the community pulled together to raise money by walking from Bishop Auckland Market Place to the West Auckland Working Men's Club.
Paying tribute to his mum, Dylan Curtis said this week has been tough.
