The girls' family has issued invites to everyone who knew the girls.

Inquests on the two teenage sisters found stabbed to death at their mother's home in Stretham were opened and adjourned at Wisbech Coroner's Court last Wednesday.

The bodies of 13-year-old Jasmine and 16-year-old Davina were found at The Crofters, on June 13. Their mother, Rekha Kumari-Baker, 39, has been charged with murder.
