A MOTHER who set up a fund to keep her teenage son’s memory alive after he died in a car crash has thanked supermarket customers for their support.

Jane Lamb, whose son Charlie died in 2009, set up Charlie’s Charity ,which has raised tens of thousands of pounds to support other sporty young people.

Now she has been presented with a cheque for £414 by the Marlborough branch of Waitrose under its Community Matters green token scheme.

Charlie was 18 when he died on September 26, 2009, as the car he was driving crashed as he headed home to West Grafton, near Pewsey after visiting friends in Oxford.

He was a keen footballer and played for both Pewsey and Devizes.

Each month three different charities are chosen and Waitrose customers decide how £1,000 should be split by putting green tokens into containers.

Mrs Lamb said: “I was very pleased to receive the money for Charlie’s Charity.”
