MORE than £1,800 has been raised in memory of a Milford Haven father, who died suddenly on April 13.

Jamie 'Dido' Jenkins was discovered at his home in Hakin at around 8.20am.

He was taken to hospital, where he passed away.

Friends are now raising money to give the 43-year-old a fitting send-off.

In a statement on the GoFundMe website, Victoria Bambrough said: "On the morning of Thursday, April 13th, a close knit family lost not only a husband, dad and brother, but a best friend."

She said his wife Katie and their young children had been dealt a "heartbreaking challenge" in trying to cope with their loss, and wished to "give the man they shared so many happy memories with the most dignified and heartfelt send-off".

The local community has responded generously, with £1,870 of the £3,000 raised in less than a week.

Dyfed-Powys Police said it was investigating the circumstances surrounding Mr Jenkins' death, and HM Coroner had been informed.
