Friends of a man who died following a Dundee road incident earlier this week have launched a bid to raise money for his children.
Scott Millar died in hospital after being struck with a car on the city’s Argyllgait early on Monday morning. A 17-year-old has been charged and released in relation to the incident.
And now an 11-strong group of Mr Millar’s friends have banded together to launch a fundraiser to “support” his two children following the tragedy.
The 33-year-old had worked for Royal Mail in Dundee’s Central Delivery Office for 14 years.
The Go Fund Me fundraiser, set up on Tuesday with a £2,000 goal, had already raised well over that by Wednesday evening.
Writing to the page, Mr Millar’s friends described him as a man of “honesty” and “humility”, adding he was “one of the most caring people we have ever met”.
It adds: “We lost our dear friend Scott this week; a piece of our lives (is) now missing. Now with the angels, he was too good for this earth – he genuinely was.
“A man of honesty, humility and one of the most caring people we have ever met, just throw in a pinch of charm and you got him!
“‘Meet you at the pub?’ He would always be there to see us and have a catch-up. The only thing that would stop him would be his family commitments. His children came first.
“He will be sadly missed by his family and friends for the time he gave us and the ear he lent. He never had a bad word to say about anyone and his heart was overflowing with love for his children.
“Taken too early in life we have setup this page to support his two children and ask for your support.
“If you ever had the honour of Scott’s company then please contribute to this fundraiser with as much as you can to make a difference in his children’s lives.
“We love you mate and miss you. There’s only one Scott Millar and there will only ever be one.
“RIP mate, the lads.”
