The name of an inspirational young sportwoman who died in a car crash three years agois liiving on in a foundation set up in her memory.

This weekend four Post Office workers will cycle from Brighton to Badwell Ash to raise money for the Emma Holloway Foundation set up by Emma’s family,

Emma, 19, from Badwell Ash, lost her life in a crash on the A134 at Bradfield Combust.

The King Edward V1 School pupil, played for Sudbury AFC Ladies and coached its Under 11s side.

She worked with disabled and disadvantaged youngsters and the foundation has been set up to further Emma’s commitment to helping them access sporting opportunities.

Her stepdad Andy Parker and three colleagues from the Post Office head office in London will be cycling 150 miles tomorrow to raise funds and awareness of the foundation.

Andy said: “Emma was a very generous young lady and lived for sport. The foundation has raised funds in many different ways. I enjoy cycling and Emma loved Brighton so it made sense to join up the two.”

Joining Andy are Paul Brown, Julian King and Davyd Nash who work with him.

Meanwhile the Suffolk FA staged the third Emmna Holloway Foundation disabled schools grand prix event at Nowton Park yesterday which her dad Neil is closely involved with.

Emma’s mum Julie said: “Emma was a keen sportswoman and liked to help disabled youngsters enjoy sport and the foundation is about helping this continue.

An award in Emma’s memory has also been set up at her school to recognise pupils who show her commitment and passion for sport.
