THOUSANDS of dollars in donations have been made in honour of Andrew Oehlman to help his grieving family farewell him in his country home town.

In just nine hours, more than $2400 has been donated to the Andrew Oehlman Fund which seeks to raise $10,000 to cover funeral costs.

Andrew was just five months shy of his third birthday when he died in hospital on Tuesday, his parents Megan and Shane by his side, after a tragic farming accident on Monday.

The little boy, described as "Mummy's 'fun loving, determined, stubborn little man'", was the youngest of three children.

"Andrew never walked, he ran," the fund reads.

"With spikey blonde hair, big blue eyes and a smile that would met your heart, Andrew brought a ray of sunshine into every person's life.

"With your help, Megan and Shane would be able to farewell their little boy in the community of Glenmorgan that Andrew home."
