Fifteen-year-old Harrison Helliwell, who died suddenly at his home in Oak Bay on Sunday, was an “extraordinary person” with a twinkle in his eye, says a fundraising page in his honour.

The St. Michaels University student is missed greatly by friends and family, says the St. Paul’s Foundation donation page, which had raised $33,000 Friday for Foundry, a youth counselling and peer-support centre for mental health and substance use.

“[We] hope that donations to Foundry can help to spare even one family from the pain of losing a child,” the page says.
