A fundraising campaign has been launched for the family of a young father killed in a farm accident near Twizel in Canterbury.

Police were called to a fatal motorcycle crash on a rural property on Twizel-Omarama Road in Glenbrook on Saturday afternoon.

A GiveALittle campaign has been launched for Kayla Murrell, who lost her partner, 
farm worker Kent Johnston, in the crash.

The campaign has been launched by Murrell's friend Chantelle McDonald, who said funds raised would help to support the family, including covering funeral costs.

"Not only has it left a massive hole in her heart, her three children have lost a great father," she wrote on the GiveALittle page.

"Please help her and the kids out with a donation to help them get through this awful time."

Police said Worksafe had been advised and the death had been referred to the Coroner.
