MORE than £3,000 has been raised for the families of the victims of the Hamelin Way car crash tragedy.

Support has been pouring in to help the two families of the horrific accident.

Irish couple Con Twomey, 39, and his wife Elber, 36, from County Cork, are said to be starting to show some progress after suffering life-threatening brain injuries in the crash.

Their 16-month-old son, Oisin, and unborn daughter Elber did not survive the accident.

Torbay Polish cab driver Marek Wojciechowski, 26 and a father-of-two, also died in the collision.

Trustees of a fund established to raise money to help the families involved have been collecting at Torquay's Sainsbury's store at The Willows, with a further collection being organised at Torquay's Asda supermarket and B&Q.

A further collection will be organised on the car park of the B&Q store later this month.

Trustee Susie Colley said money had been given to the family of the Irish couple to help with their travel costs.

Mrs Colley said an equal amount of money had been given to the family of the Polish taxi driver to help with similar needs.

She added: "Both families will get the same amount of money. We have been overwhelmed by the generosity of people in such austere times."

Donations can be made payable to 'Hamelin Way Fund', either to the Herald Express, Harmsworth House, Barton Hill Road, Torquay TQ2 8JN or into a Lloyds TSB account: Sort code 30-98-67, account number 22316960. Also log on to www.hamelinwayfund.org
