THE family of a 23-month-old girl who died after she was hit by a car on Monday morning hopes to raise money to cover the cost of a funeral.

A GoFundMe page was set up by the girl's grandmother, Janice Marie McSweeney, who hopes to raise $5000 through the fundraising website.

In a post on the GoFundMe page Ms McSweeney said the money would help the family in its time of need.

"Lizzy was 28 days off her second birthday," Ms McSweeney said.

"She was a bright, bubbly, happy, always smiling little girl.

"This loss has come as a complete (tragedy) to the family and (they will) forever be missing her comforting smile and laugh that she brought into their home.

"Elizabeth will be forever in our hearts and our minds. We want to make this time special and give her the send off that she deserves."

So far, "Lizzy's Fund" has raised $500.
