The former school of two teenage crash victims is raising funds in their memory.
Crestwood School and Sixth Form is encouraging students to ‘shine bright’ in memory of Lucy Tibbetts and Nathan Cartwright.
Pupils will ditch uniforms for the day and don their brightest attire in tribute to the pair after their lives were tragically cut short.
Lucy, 16, and Nathan, 18, were travelling in a Skoda Fabia with three other occupants when it crashed into a tree in Bromley Lane.
Lucy, Joshua Parkes, 21, and a 16-year-old victim – who has not been officially named – were pronounced dead at the scene.
Nathan was taken to Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham but sadly died four days later.
Crestwood School headteacher, Caroline Sutton said: “Following the tragic loss of two of our former students, Lucy Tibbetts and Nathan Cartwright, in the accident on Bromley Lane last week, we will be starting our fundraising for them this week.
“This Friday (October 23) I would like everyone to ‘Shine Bright for Lucy and Nathan’.
“Please wear your brightest clothes and let’s fill the school with colour.
“There will be buckets around school from tomorrow for students and staff to make donations and if any parents or friends of the school would like to contribute please drop your donations in to reception.
“With the money raised, I will be meeting with Lucy and Nathan’s friends in school and after consultation with their families decide on the best way of honouring these two wonderful young people who will always be part of the Crestwood Family.
“I look forward to shining bright with all of you on Friday.”
