"We would like to thank everybody for the overwhelming support shown for Matt. We would also like to take this time to thank all the emergency services for their outstanding care; a special thank you to Hull Royal Infirmary for giving him the best possible chance.
Our sympathy also extends to all families involved in the accident.
From such a young age, Matty had shown incredible levels of kindness, love & care to every person that he touched. He had just started a new chapter into adulthood by achieving an apprenticeship with Soper BMW; already showing his high levels of independence by settling into his new role so quickly.
Matthew’s friends had described him as ‘one of the most generous guys that they knew’ and this generosity extended by him becoming an organ donor.
Matt will be remembered for his sociable, thoughtful & loyal character. His light will continue to shine & forever he will be in our hearts".
