"You never imagine this will happen to someone you love; it's your worst nightmare.

"We are so grateful to all the emergency services and hospital staff who cared for him in his final few days of life and I am overwhelmed by the show of support for my fundraising effort."

She added: "I've thought many times over the last 12 months that I want to do something positive one year since the car crash - and that's how my idea to have my hair shaved off came about.

"I never dreamed that I would ever do anything like this, nor did I ever think my wonderful dad would be taken from us in such a shocking and cruel way.

"That's why you never know when you may need the air ambulance."
