Friends of a young man killed in a road accident will mark the anniversary of his death by holding a rave in honour of his love of dance music.

Scott Reminch, of Slamannan, was just 23 when he died on holiday in Greece last year. His untimely death was a devastating blow to his friends and family across the Falkirk district.

They hope a memorial event taking place on Saturday will raise thousands for charity as well as being a suitable way of remembering a man with a passion for dance.

Scott’s elder sister, Darcie McRae, said: “He was polite, honourable, charming and a pleasure to be around.

“He could charm the birds out of the trees if he had a mind to. He brought many of his friends together and now, in his absence, his friends have come together for him. It’s a beautiful thing and Scott would be speechless with the love that is being demonstrated.

“Scott loved all music but, true to his generation, dance music was his passion. He went to big rave events with his friends on a regular basis. He was due to attend Global Gathering with his pals shortly before he died.”

The event, entitled ‘Raving for Reminch’, will take place at The Martell in Falkirk. Admission is strictly by invitation only.

Among the seven DJs performing across two rooms on the night will be Gregg MacDonald and Paul Cook. Both of them were good friends of Scott.

Proceeds from the rave will be split between Playing for Change, which builds music schools across the world, and When You Wish Upon A Star, which organises special activites for children with life-threatening illnesses.
