A fundraiser has been set up to remember 18-year-old Haroon Ahmed, who tragically passed away following a car crash last week.


The GoFundMe page pays tribute to the ‘selfless’ young man who is described as a ‘pillar in the community.’

Haroon spent a lot of time working with youth in the community, helping them to grow up in a safe environment.

The post also says: “A son, grandson, brother, cousin and a nephew who was always full of life. Haroon would light up a room with his radiant smile and jolly presence.

“Many who had the privilege of knowing Haroon will vouch as to what an amazing, respectful and caring person he was.

“Haroon passed away with the Quran in his heart. He was a Hafiz of Quran. The son that any mother could wish for. The brother who was always loving and caring. A friend that would put everyone before himself.”
