A new donation page has been set up to fund a memorial for the four young men who died in the Derry Hill crash.

The page has been backed by the families and the town’s Mayor, and comes on the heels of three arrests in connection with a fraudulent page.

The fake GoFundMe site was spotted weeks after the horrific crash in which the four young men died when their car left the road and smashed through a fence before bursting into flames in the front garden of a Derry Hill house.

The GoFundMe page was titled “Jordan, Corey, Matt, Ryan Memorial” – but had not been set up by anyone known to the families.

Three people – none local – have been arrested, but released while investigations continue, and GoFundMe has refunded any donations made.

The town wants to raise £8,000 for a memorial to the four young crash victims, Ryan Nelson, 20, Corey Owen, 19, Matthew Parke, 19, and Jordan Rawlings, 20.

Su Johnson, a close friend of Matthew Parke's mum Amanda, has now set up a new page with Calne Town Mayor, Cllr Robert Merrick in place as beneficiary.

Since going live on December 5 donations have already hit more than £2,600.

“All of the families have agreed to me setting this up and our Mayor, Robert Merrick has kindly offered to be the beneficiary of the fund and ensure the money received is distributed appropriately towards the memorial so many people previously donated to.

“All the families and I hope people will consider re-donating, and the boys get the memorial so many people were happy to contribute to. “

Amanda Parke told Calne News: "This was devastating for us and the families of Corey, Ryan and Jordan.

“We were then heartbroken to discover that the Go Fund Me campaign set up in their names turned out to be a fraud. All donors have now been refunded. We have now set up a new Just Giving campaign in the hope that donors to the original fund will re-donate. 

"All families have sanctioned the setting up of this fund."

Police say they are now trying to trace everyone who donated money to the fake site.

In late October, officers from Wiltshire Police travelled to the Northamptonshire area and arrested a 32-year-old woman and a 17-year-old boy on suspicion of fraud by false representation.

Last week, officers returned to the same area and arrested a 36-year-old man on suspicion of fraud by false representation.

A large quantity of Class A drugs was discovered at the suspect’s property, and he was arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply Class A drugs.

All three have been released under investigation while  inquiries continue.
