The third funeral for the victims of the Derry Hill road traffic collision is taking place this Thursday (24/09).

Matthew Parke’s funeral will begin with the cortege leaving the family home at around 11.50am, travelling along the bypass and down Oxford Road and through Calne town centre.

The funeral service and the event to celebrate Matthew’s life are private and by invitation only.

Afterwards, the funeral flowers will be taken to Calne pop-up park and placed there.

The family of Matt would like to thank the community of Calne, family and friends for all the support and love they have received during this very difficult time - it has been very much appreciated.

Matt's family wish to do something meaningful in his memory.

They are raising funds to support Kingsbury Green Academy, formerly known as John Bentley. This is where Matt went to secondary school including being a student of the 6th form.

He was extremely happy there and made many very close friends. He achieved excellent results in his GCSEs and A-levels thanks to the support, encouragement and motivation he received from his tutors and his head teacher Mr Tudor.

If anyone would like to make a donation, donations can be made to Odette Funeral Director or to Matt's Go Fund Me page with is titled 'Matthew Parke's Memorial Fundraiser'.
