On Their Bikes in Memory of Nick; CHARITY: Girlfriend Organises Fundraiser after Student Dies Suddenly


Byline: Jenny Waddington

WHEN fun-loving Coventry student Nick Jarram died suddenly of heart failure, his grieving girlfriend made it her mission to raise much-needed cash to fund research and help prevent other people from suffering similar tragedies.

Nikki Holliday was left broken-hearted when her 26-yearold boyfriend dropped dead at his home just days before his birthday last month.

As the Telegraph previously reported, the photography undergraduate from Cheylesmore had no history of health problems.

But during the early hours of Saturday, March 21, he suffered tightness in his chest and collapsed at his student home in Bournemouth.

After three years together, 25-year-old Nikki was left devastated and vowed to raise money for charities - including Cry (Cardiac Risk in Young) - and boost awareness of the undetected killer disease which claimed Nick's life.

She enlisted the help of her mum Diane, who works at Borders bookshop at the city's Ricoh Arena Shopping Park, and together with other staff members they organised a marathon sponored cycle on an exercise bike.

The two-day event attracted a great deal of attention from local shoppers who were asked to make a donation in Nick's memory and also for another member of staff who lost his father to cancer.

Half of the money raised will go towards Cry and half will be donated to Cancer Research.
