Tributes paid to Stratford School student from Warwick who died in crash

TRIBUTES have been paid to a ‘kind and loving’ Stratford School student who died in a car crash.

Alison Ingham is believed to have lost control of her Toyota Yaris on a bend of the B4086 Banbury Road between Warwmington and Kineton

The 19-year-old from Warwick was flown by air ambulance to hospital following the crash happened on Wednesday October 24.

She was kept in an induced coma until her life support system was switched off on Tuesday October 30.

Eight of her close friends remembered Alison by having her initial ‘A’ tattooed on their wrists.

And her family have released a statement paying tribute to her.

They said: “Alison was such a wonderful, loving, kind and happy girl. She lived her short life to the full and never had a bad word to say about anyone.

“She touched so many lives in her 19 years and her sister, mother and father are so proud of what she achieved in her short life.

“Ali, we all miss you so much, you will always be in our hearts and you will never be forgotten.”

Alison was a student at Stratford School for a year before her death. where she was studying A levels.

A spokeswoman said: “It is with great sadness that we heard about the passing of Alison Ingham. Though she only spent a year with us in sixth form she settled in extremely well and made many friends here. The students and staff at Stratford School would like to extend our deepest sympathy to her family at this very difficult time.”

A fund-raising page has been set up to raise money for the air ambulance charity in Alison’s memory.

In a day it raised nearly £4,000 of its £5,000 target.

Alison’s friend and the page’s organiser Lauren Shorten said: “Many people have been deeply saddened by the devastating news last week that Alison, our beautiful and bubbly dancing queen, was snatched from us so prematurely.

“The money donated through this page will be donated to the Midlands Air Ambulance charity. Alison’s family have chosen this charity, as due to the air ambulance arriving to Alison so quickly, it allowed her family to have the time that they deserved to say goodbye.

“Your donations, no matter how big or small, will make a big difference to the service and will keep them in the air to save lives.”
