Alice, 21, who had only joined South East Coast Ambulance Service in November, died in the accident near Tonbridge and her devastated parents paid tribute to their 'beautiful, kind' daughter, the next day.

Now a university friend of Alice, who was from Newington, near Sittingbourne, has set up a Gofundme page to raise money to help her family.

Alice was also a former pupil of Rainham Mark Grammar School, in Medway.

Already the page has amassed almost £7,000 in less than 24-hours and was set up by her friend Yasmin Bekir.

Ms Bekir had studied with Alice for three years at the University of Greenwich and explained on the gofundme site why she set up the fundraiser.

She said: "The only way my colleagues and I know how to fix things now is to try and support and care for all of those affected by what has happened to our beautiful, smiley Alice.

"This Go Fund Me money will be provided to Alice's family which quite honestly and plainly will never even come close to all having our Alice back but as I said above, trying to fix things even a little partial relief is what we do and all we all want to do is make Alice proud."

Ms Bekir also shared some of her memories of Alice and paid tribute to her on the page.

She added: "I have several, happy memories of Alice and I struggling to lift a chair with a 50kg dummy up the stairs right to our first day at University where I took her on a tour of Greenwich.

"All of us that studied and trained with Alice have our own story to tell of how much of a beautiful soul she truly and purely was.

"As coined as a 'big dysfunctional family' you come to know a lot of each other through the career path my colleagues and I have chosen to do, you feel yourself naturally all bonded together by the unique experiences we have in our job.

"No one and I mean no one deserves such a high honor of being called a Paramedic as Alice does.

"I think I speak for everyone when I say that Alice will forever be a motivator to make her as proud as possible of all of us every day as Paramedics but also as Human Beings, she was outstanding at being both!

"We are so proud of you, thank you for all of the memories and for entering all of our lives, we are truly blessed to have known you and I will carry you in my heart for as long as I live.

"Your infectious smile infected us all and in the quiet hours of my life that's all I can think about and I hope that sticks around forever.
