Freddie Farrow Wiki – Freddie Farrow Biography
Freddie Farrow died after sustaining a severe head injury at a department store. His family said he was “loved and cherished” every day.
Freddie Farrow was in the Fenwick store on Colchester’s High Street on 27 July when a mirror struck him.
He was 5 years.
Freddie Farrow, five, had just finished Year 1 at school when he suffered severe head injuries when the falling mirror struck him at Fenwick’s high street shop.
The little lad was rushed from the shop in Essex on July 27 to the local hospital before being transferred to Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge.
The schoolboy sadly died from his injuries on August 2.
Freddie’s mother, Natasha Ingham, said: “He will never leave us.
“He will be with us every single day throughout all our lives – until we see him again.
“As a family, we are devastated by his death.”
She described him as “a lovely” boy who would pick her flowers every day.
He would “give them to me and tell me he loved me, and I would tell him I loved him back,” she said.
Freddie’s father, Andrew Farrow, said they had all been “grateful for the time we had with Freddie” and said how much his son was “loved and cherished”.
Freddie had a brother and sister, and the three were “inseparable”, their father said.
“Freddie was an expert Lego builder, confident swimmer, enjoyed crabbing and park running,” Mr Farrow said.
“He had such a contagious laugh and always pulled funny faces.”
He added: “I will miss you Fredboy, so, so much… and until we meet again, I love you.”
A fundraising page has gathered just under £5,000 to support Freddie’s family since it was set up last week.
The parents have both thanked the community for their support.
The headteacher at Gosbecks Primary School, Polly Bradford, described Freddie as a “quiet and thoughtful soul” with a “unique character”.
Freddie was due to start Year 2 and was said to be a “little star”.
Polly said: “Freddie was a little star. His sensitive and caring nature shone through with his friends, who he always looked out for and cared for.
“He was a sweet-natured boy who was always polite and well-mannered with everyone he came across in school.
