A FAMILY moved by the tragic deaths of Dean Bloomfield and Scott Towler is to hold a special fundraising event in aid of the teenagers.
Colin De'ath decided that the annual charity event at his home in Trimley St Mary, should this year contribute to the Dean and Scott Appeal.
The appeal was set up by the Evening Star after the two 15-year-olds were killed when they were hit by a car in May and has so far raised over £5,200.
Mr De'ath hopes to raise somewhere in the region of £300 by displaying model vehicles and train sets in his garden and, judging by previous years' events, the day should be a success, he said: "The annual event is usually really popular and I'm really looking forward to it.
"We choose a charity every year and all are worthy causes but this year we chose the Dean and Scott Appeal because we felt it was a good cause and would attract a lot of support."
The two-day event will include the display of a model railway which will run from Mr De'ath's garage through to his garden.
