A Fife woman who was killed in a car crash will be given a fitting funeral after well-wishers quadrupled a fundraising target set by friends and family.
Kimberly Robertson, 31, from Rosyth, passed away following the accident on the A9 near Luncarty at around 7.30pm on Thursday October 13, sparking a huge outpouring of grief on social media from those who knew her.
A Crowdfunding page has since been set up to support Ms Robertson’s family and the total money raised now stands around the £2,000 mark, well over the initial £500 target.
The page, which was only started at the weekend, reads: “Kimberly was a gorgeous bubbly and friendly girl with loads of people around her who loved her.
“This is a really hard time for everyone who knew Kimberly, so if everyone could help out the family by making a donation no matter how little to help towards funeral costs and anything else that’s needed.”
Ms Robertson had been travelling in the front passenger seat in a car when it collided head on with a van, and she died at the scene despite the best efforts of paramedics.
Her partner Brian Hampson, his daughter Ella, 7, and his son Noah, 5, were also in the vehicle and were taken to hospital with serious injuries, although they are all expected to make a full recovery.
Mr Hampson has requested privacy, although he left an emotional tribute on social media which read: “Love you so much babe will miss you always! Love of my life always and forever!”
Friends, ex-school mates and work colleagues of Ms Robertson have posted messages of condolence on the Crowdfunding page, while Fife Soccer Sevens Development Association has generously said it will hand a £500 cheque to The Norries 2010 age group – the football team young Noah plays for – to pass on.
Police Scotland’s Tayside Division said that enquiries into the full set of circumstances of the incident were ongoing and appealed to anyone who may have information that could assist officers to contact 101.
A report has been submitted to the procurator fiscal.
