A HUDDERSFIELD man killed in a road tragedy is the son of a tireless charity worker.
Christopher Gray, 20, a twin, is one of seven children and is the son of Carol Gray.
Carol set up her own charity more than 10 years ago, headed more than 45 convoys to the former Yugoslavia and is now improving life for children in Ghana.
Carol and husband, Stuart, live at Lindley Moor.
Christopher, a roofer who lived with his parents, was killed in a car crash in Calderdale in the early hours of Saturday morning.
He was a back seat passenger in a Peugeot 306 which hit two walls on West Street in Sowerby Bridge at 12.45am.
Another passenger, a 26-year-old Huddersfield man, was badly hurt.
He was critically ill in Calderdale Royal Hospital at first, but his condition has now improved and he is said to be comfortable.
The driver, a 21-year-old Huddersfield man, was arrested and later released on police bail.
Carol was moved to do charity work when she saw a haunting TV image of the Balkan conflict 12 years ago.
The image was a terrified mother caught up in the conflict and clinging to three tiny children.
Carol set up the relief charity Starlight UK which has now been renamed Hugs International TLC.
What started as trucks filled with humanitarian aid expanded and eventually she was virtually transporting entire operating rooms and intensive care units as well as huge generators to power them.
Carol won many awards for her humanitarian work and became an adviser to the United Nations and the Ministry of Defence.
Since 2000 she has turned her attentions to Africa and is setting up two orphanages in Ghana along with schools, education and medical centres while also supplying food and water.
An inquest on Christopher was due to open at Bradford Coroner's Court today.
