KIND-HEARTED teenagers are holding a fun day to raise money for a headstone to mark the grave of their 16-year-old friend.
Last April, Sutton Estate resident Jay Tamer died tragically in a car crash. His death sent shockwaves through the close-knit community of the Dalgarno area of North Kensington.
Hundreds of mourners went to the funeral of the former Barlby Primary School pupil and many young people in the area wore special T-shirts in his honour.
Just over a year since his death, Jay's memory is being kept alive.
On Saturday, April 18, a fun day and football tournament will be held at the community centre in Webb Close, Ladbroke Grove, to mark his life.
The proceeds of the day will go to his family, in order to put a headstone on his grave at nearby Kensal Green Cemetery.
Friend Danielle Murphy, 17, explained: "Everyone loved Jay. He was a cheeky boy and he loved playing football, he supported Manchester United.
"We want keep his memory alive and help raise money for the family.

Dani Morris, 18, added: "Jay had his whole life ahead of him and had just passed his GCSE mocks."
Manager of the Dalgarno Youth Partnership, Craig Edmunds, added: "On the day we're having a football tournament, its called the Tamer tournament."
The friends are encouraging everyone to come along and support both Jay's family and the estate.
