'Our hearts will be broken forever' – Devastated parents of Inverness boxer Nicola Rattray announce arrangements for her funeral
A funeral service for Inverness amateur boxer Nicola Rattray will be held on Friday, November 15.
Announcing plans for the funeral next week the family of amateur boxer Nicola Rattray said: "Our hearts will be broken forever".
The 18-year-old's parents, Lenny and Gill Rattray, say that their beautiful and cherished daughter was "tragically taken from them" and describe "Nic" as a "devoted and amazing mummy to Breigha (B), adored sister to Lauren, dedicated auntie to Charlie (Cha Cha) and also a beloved granddaughter to Evelen and the late Adam Grant."
The funeral will take place at 12.15pm in the Methodist Church, Huntly Street, Inverness, not far from the gym where Nicola trained with Inverness City Boxing Club. It will be followed by a private interment.
An online appeal launched in support of Breigha, who will be two in the spring, had reached almost £4800 yesterday as city residents rallied round.
Nicola was found dead at her home last Friday. Police said there were no suspicious circumstances.
