Joel Carr

Some of you will know Joel Carr and his partner Hollie Thompson, Joel is a true rugby man through and through and has played for Grimsby youth, seniors and now at Cleethorpes. His brother Nathan also played for Grimsby and his Dad was an avid fan and keen supporter.

Unfortunately it was Joel and his family that were involved in the vehicle crash on Saturday morning on the M180.   Whilst Joel, Hollie and William (Joel’s and Hollies eldest son) suffered very minor injuries unfortunately James, aged two, died instantly at the scene.

Joel and Hollie and the families are naturally devastated and Joel has asked to thank everyone who has got in touch with wishes, sympathy and condolences. They only ask if that visible message via social media can be put to one side as they deal with the ramifications of their terrible loss. Phone messages and private messages are of course most welcome.

A date for the funeral has not been set but details will be released in due course.

Our sincere condolences are with Joel, Hollie and their family at this very difficult time.
