A FUNDRAISER has been started for the daughter of a Mandurah mum killed in a car accident in South Australia.

Tammy Marchant (18) died after the Nissan she was travelling in with three others rolled on the Augusta Highway.

Josh Graham (26) also died in the crash, passengers Aaron Bishop and Jarrad James Famlonga were airlifted to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

The organiser of the fundraiser Rachel Yaafe-Pain wrote that she started the fundraiser after hearing from Ms Marchant’s parents.

“Tammy has left behind her two-year-old daughter Nevaeh,” she wrote.

“There are no words to even describe this situation. But here is where we can do something great. We want to welcome Nevaeh into our tribe now and forever.”

Ms Yaafe-Pain said the funds will go toward Ms Marchant’s funeral and toward Navaeh’s daycare costs.

“Now is not the time for them to be thinking about the money, they need to be able to say goodbye to their daughter and look after their granddaughter,” Ms Yaafe-Pain wrote.

“So please lets all support them. $1 from each of us goes a long-long way.”

On Monday afternoon more than $3600 had been donated to the You Caring account.
