Nearly £4,000 has been donated from family, friends and well-wishers from across the world, the Daily Record reports .

On the fundraising page, dad James said: “Rebekah is in hospital in Phuket with a serious infection and is very ill.

I am trying to raise enough funds to get her home as soon as possible as she is way too poorly to fly.

“I am in Phuket with her and I understand that she is well known all over the world through her travels throughout Asia and I am respectfully appealing to everyone to give a little to bring my girl home.

I would like to thank everyone who has helped Rebekah so far and sincerely thank everyone in advance for their support.

“Any surplus funds will be donated to a charity of Rebekah’s choice.”

James issued an update today, thanking everyone who has supported the campaign, which is currently trending on the GoFundMe website.
