In a message on thefund raising site the family thanked people in advance for donations:

"As you all may know, Tammy Marie Platow was involved in a collision on the 11th January 2017 and sadly passed away at the scene. She was in no pain. We have set up this page in her honour, to help with the funeral costs and flowers, to give her the send off she damn right deserves! Any donations will be more than appreciated, no matter how small. We shall let you know the date of the funeral when we know.

"You are all welcome to bring a single flower each but not bunches as we will have arranged her special ones (if you understand that) . I know many of you will be travelling and its going to leave us all out of pocket but we do need your help and we all know if it was anyone else Tammy would be the first to help and donate.

"You are all welcome to the funeral and i will keep you all informed. Lets all do what she wanted and get together as 1 for her and give her the celebration of her life that she deserved!

"Thank you very much in advance.

"Love from the family xx"
