Funds raised in memory of James Morgan and Martin Wilson after Lightwood cras
TWO Stoke City fans will be remembered at fundraising events at the weekend.
Friends and relatives of 26-year-old Martin Wilson, of Blurton, and 20-year-old James Morgan, of Lightwood, are staging the events on Saturday and Sunday.
The Railway Pub, in Heron Cross, is hosting a charity night on December 1 to raise money for the families of the men who died in a car crash on November 18.
And the following day, a family fun day is taking place at London Road Sports and Social Club, in Stoke.
There will be an auction, a sponsored back wax and a raffle and disco.
Tickets for the event, which starts at 12pm, cost £5.
Proceeds from both events will be split between James and Martin's families.
The events come days before funeral services for the pair are due to be held on Tuesday.
A service for Martin will take place at Carmountside Crematorium at 11.30am and for James at St Mary and Chad's Church, in Longton, at 1.30pm, followed by cremation at Carmountside.
Martin, who was known to his friends as Wilson, and James, whose nickname was Jim, died following a crash in Lightwood Road, Lightwood, at 4.30am.
They were passengers in a car which crashed into a lamppost and landed in the front garden of a house.
Driver Terriann Harrington, aged 26, sustained serious injuries.
Police are still investigating the incident.
