Friends raise over £16,000 in Ryan Moore's memory
MORE than £16,000 has already been raised in memory of popular 22-year- old Ryan Moore.
Ryan, inset left, died in a car crash on New Year's Day, just hours after proposing to his childhood sweetheart and mother of his unborn son, Hayley Johnstone.
On Saturday, hundreds of his friends and family gathered at the Hartcliffe Inn, on Brocks Road, for an auction, raffle and to remember the good times they had with him.
Organised by Ryan's friends Dean Partridge, Chris Nicholls, Tasha Nicholls and Kelly O'Donnell, the money will go towards Ryan's funeral and to provide for Hayley, 22, and baby Ryley, whose birth is due in five weeks.

Scores of prizes were donated for the day and friends wore T-shirts with his picture printed on them.
Life-long pal Dean, who worked for May Gurney with Ryan, said: "Everyone has done Ryan proud. I'd like to thank everyone who donated prizes and everyone who came on the day and was so generous with their donations. It really brought the people of Hartcliffe together."
Talking of the tragic circumstances of Ryan's death, the 26-year-old added: "The day he died had been the happiest of his life. He was saving up for a mortgage for him, Hayley and Ryley to get a place of their own, so we're happy we can help them with this money. I miss having Ryan here so much."
Ryan, of Hawkfield Road, was on his own driving a friend's car following a New Year's Eve party when it crashed into a building on Queen's Road, Bishopsworth, at about 3.15am.
He had not told anyone he was leaving and police are still trying to discover what caused the white Citroen Saxo to leave the carriageway.
