An appeal has been launched to help the family of tragic Wisbech schoolboy Kastytis Dambrauskas
An online appeal has been launched to help the family of the schoolboy killed while riding his bike to school in Wisbech.
The appeal, launched last night (Monday) by the Rosmini Centre, aims to raise £3,000 for the family of 10-year-old Kastytis Dambrauskas who died after being involved in a collision with a lorry on Weasenham Lane on July 16.
Mark Griffin, project co-ordinator at the centre, explained a number of people had asked what they could do to help the family at this tragic time.
He said: "We had people saying they wanted to do something to help the family, so we got in touch to ask if there was anything they needed. They said help with the cost of funeral would be useful to them,so we are hoping to raise enough to pay for one.
"We have known the family for sometime as we have a lady who comes to the centre who is good friends with them and so we want to help if we can. We have set up the Gofundme page where people can make donations.
"We don't know when the funeral is likely to be as it is a difficult subject for the family, but hopefully this appeal will help a little bit."
Meanwhile flowers and soft toys have been left at the scene of the accident, which happened at around 8.30am.
Police have appealed for witnesses to the incident and anyone who has any information should contact officers on 101 quoting: CC-16072018-0100.
