Woman Embarks on Fundraiser in Memory of her Dad


12:01am 8th July 2012

A young woman whose father was killed by a drink driver is doing a sponsored walk to raise money for the Dorset & Somerset Air Ambulance.

Faye Bartlett is walking from Portland Heights to Dorchester town centre in memory of dad Ray who was knocked from his motorbike and killed last year.

Friends and family will join her, carrying collection buckets and wearing t-shirts with Ray's picture on them.

Faye believes that if her dad hasn't died at the scene the Dorset & Air Ambulance could have saved him and he could still be alive. She said: "My dad was fantastic in every way. I just wanted to make him proud so I got all my friends together, my brother, his girlfriend, and we're just going for it."
