Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit Olly, Harry & Robert's JustGiving page.

In 2005 we tragically lost Fee – beloved wife and mother, when she took her own life. The shock and loss was enormous and it wasn’t until 2009 when we discovered the charity organisation SOBSThis charity has helped all three of us, in different ways, in coming to terms with such a painful loss. It is a loss that you never get over, but their involvement in our lives has helped us to move on but not forget.

 As a consequence we would like to ‘give something back’ by raising the profile of SOBS and by raising some funds to assist with their good work. 

Suicide affects so many people, not only in this country but across the world. So often those affected do not know where to turn to for support; they have so many unanswered questions; their emotions are all over the place; there may be friends of yours; people that you work with etc. who are suffering from the loss of someone close to them. We go to monthly meetings to help us deal with our loss but the hardest part for us, is seeing new faces each month coming through that door. Everyone in that room knows how they must be feeling and SOBS can help them ease the pain of loss.

So please help us to raise these funds, so this fantatsic charity can continue to give such wonderful support to people who have lost loved ones, as we did, through suicide.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer. So it’s the most efficient way to donate - we raise more, whilst saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

So please dig deep and donate now. Thank you so much and if you would like to join us on all or part of the bicycle ride let us know.

We are so close to our target now. It would be so lovely to have hit the target before we start on Sunday 30th Sept. A huge thank you to all of you who have supported us both financially and in other ways. It does mean so much. Fee would be amazed by what we have achieved.

As we’ve nearly achieved our target of £15K, Katie has thrown down the challenge for us to double that whilst on the road! Is this another hill to climb? Let’s give it a go & see what happens. Not long to go now. We are looking forward to the ride. O,H,R
