    A fundraising appeal has been launched to return the remains of a Brazilian motorcyclist to his family

    A fundraising appeal has been launched to return the remains of a Brazilian motorcyclist to his family


    Andre Fernandes died in a crash at the intersection of Riccarton Road and Hansons Lane in Christchurch last week.

    A Givealittle page has raised more than 12-thousand dollars so his partner - Nicola - can return him home to Sao Paolo.

    Friends say all those who knew Fernandes - even briefly - loved him instantly.

    The Police investigation into the crash is continuing.
