HUNDREDS of pounds have been raised in memory of popular Rugby man Liam Chidlow.
Friends, family and colleagues gathered at Junction One Retail Park on Sunday evening to attend the fundraising event where there were cup cakes with Liam’s face on and lanterns for sale. There was also a tombola.
Sainsbury’s in Dunchurch Road, where Liam worked, have put up a Christmas tree and are selling memory labels with half the money going to charity and the rest to Liam’s fund. All the money raised will be donated to Liam’s mum Diane.
On a Facebook group in memory of Liam, his step brother Mark Coleman said: “Mum and Dad would like to say a big thank you to all the people at J1 last night for my brother Liam. We all have been touched by your love for Liam. Thanks for all your kind words and thoughts.
Liam, 23, of Saunton Road, died on November 15 after the car he was driving crashed into a tree on the A45 near Stretton-on-Dunsmore.
Hundreds of tributes have poured in for Liam since he died with everyone saying how much they loved him.
His funeral will be held at 10am on Monday (December 3) at St Andrew’s Church, Church Street, Rugby.
The family say all are welcome to attend.
