James was tragically killed in a collision off the A55 Westbound, near Northop on Sunday, December 1. Currently, the campaign has raised £1,405 of its £2,000 goal.

Karen Farnworth, who set up the fundraiser in memory of James on gofundme.com, posted : “The freestyle world’s heart is broken with the worst news of James Agar-Leigh.

“We would like to help James Family in any way, so if anyone wants to contribute to help them make any of it easier we would be grateful.

“He was the most genuine humble beautiful guy. He admired talent like no other, always praising other professionals and dancers.”

Following the news of James’ death, tributes have flooded in from all over the world for the well known performer and teacher.

Responding to the outpouring of support on Facebook, James’ mother Collette Leigh posted: “We have had messages from all over the world, across the UK, family across the water from Ireland and amazing support from the vast dance community as well as our local community, and his own incredible dance family - he loved all the children as if they were his own.

“Our whole world has crumbled - he was so so loved. Our precious first born, born nine weeks premature and in and out of hospital at the start of his life. He was always special, gentle and kind, everyone loved him and he just cared and loved everyone.

“I just wish he had not been alone on his own in the car, no one holding his hand, like he held all of ours - and he did hold all of ours - always guiding us through tough times.”

Anybody with information that could assist North Wales Police in the investigation of James’ death is asked to contact officers at the Roads Policing Unit on 101 or via the live web chat quoting reference number X173638.

James' funeral will take place at St Mary's Church on Wellington Road, Rhyl on Tuesday, December 17 at 10am.

The burial will take place at the Rhuddlan Cemetery, followed by a wake at the Kinmel Manor.

Anyone wishing to pay their respects is welcome to both the church and the wake.
