THE parents of tragic car crash victim Robert Jamieson have vowed to set up a charity helping orphans in one of the world's poorest countries as a tribute to him.
Robert, 20, died in February when his car was in collision with a bus carrying pupils home from Rhyddings Business and Enterprise College at the notorious Britannia Inn crossroads .
Robert, who worked part-time at Accrington's Asda store, was a passionate supporter of the work done in Haiti by Bishop Philip Norris, the supermarket's chaplain.
And now his parents Robert and Susan have vowed to set up a charity, Share Haiti, to build an orphanage on the Caribbean island.
Robert said: "Bishop Philip is one of our friends and he has spent nine years working out there, as Haiti is one of the world's poorest countries. Around 80 per cent of the population live in poverty.
"He has already built one orphanage out there and now he is looking to open a second one to help even more people.
"When Robert was at the store he spoke with Bishop Philip about his work and he was enthralled by it, although he had never actually visited Haiti. When we build the orphanage it will be in memory of him."
The family are looking to get Share Haiti officially registered with the Charities Commission which involves raising an initial £1,000.
Once that is done, they are planning a series of campaigns to raise £200,000 to build the orphanage.
Robert has also designed a website for people to visit to find out more about the cause, which he is hoping to launch soon.
Anyone who would like more information about the campaign should give Robert a ring on 692237.
