Funeral of sisters killed in Morocco crash
THE funeral of two sisters killed in a car crash in Morocco will be held on Friday.
A celebration of the lives of Tara Darlington, 23, and her sister Pippa, 21, from Whiteparish, will be held at the village’s All Saints' Church.
The girls were on an “adventure of a lifetime” trip when their rented car collided with another vehicle near the capital Rabat on Monday, September 17.
Their friend Joshua Stump, 21, from Whiteparish, was seriously injured in the accident and is still being treated in hospital.
An inquest was opened and adjourned into the sisters’ deaths last week.
The private service, for family and friends and for those who wish to support them and remember Tara and Pippa, will be led by Rev Nils Bersweden and Rev Jane Dunlop.
Donations in Tara and Pippa's memory will go to charity Streetlytes, which was important to the girls.
It provides support for the homeless and those suffering from mental health and addiction issues and its founder Rudi Richardson was said to have inspired the sisters.
