Mr Jennings died in a crash over the weekend

A fundraising page set up in memory of a popular biker who died in a crash over the weekend has raised more than £1,700 in a matter of days.

Tributes have poured in for Crayford’s Ollie Jennings, who died at the scene after his bike was involved in a crash with road furniture on the A228 Peninsula Way toward Medway at 12.22am on Sunday morning.

A JustGiving page was set up the following day, and by Thursday morning, it had managed to raised £1,740.

Friend Jessica Wright started the page, with money expected to go toward Mr Jenning’s girlfriend’s road to recovery, after she suffered serious injuries in the crash.

Many donators have left tributes to the former Erith School student.

One described the keen biker as “an absolute diamond of a guy”, while another said they “would miss his friendly, smiling face.”

The biker has not yet been officially named by police, who are appealing for any witnesses to call 01622 798538 quoting DS/DM/097/17.

“Alternatively, people can email the unit on sciu.td@kent.pnn.police.uk.”
