    Story

    Hey All ! I made a mistake with the old page and it has already closed, we have raised £3,500 towards our target of £5,000 + gift aid. We are nearly home. We have 1000km to go / 10,000km. And we'd hugely appreciate your support and sharing of this cause - the fundraising page link is still the same.

    We are cycling for LIFE - in memory of one of my oldest friends, Darragh, who my wonderful friends and I lost to suicide last year. The hilarious, cheeky, brilliant-minded, Darragh, is no longer with us but we cycle with him in spirit and we want to help others from takjng their own lives.

    W raising money for suicide prevention charities - Papyrus and SoBS. Suicide is the biggest killer of people under the age of 35 in the UK.

    Papyrus is the leading youth suicide prevention charity and offers a free helpline, HOPELINEUK, for young people to access for support. S.O.B.S. supports families who have experienced this terrible tragedy through their bereavement and is chosen because it has supported Darragh’s beloved family through this heart-breaking time.

    I know all of us think about Darragh most days, the last time we saw him, the depth of what he must have been going through not to be able to tolerate life on earth another day. And we think about Darragh’s lovely family who loved him so much, who must now move through this world without him. So, what I want more than anything is for families to be supported through tragedies like this and for other young people like Darragh to be guided through times of darkness, so they still feel there is much to live for.

    Please support this extremely important cause by considering a donation and sharing widely.

    Thank you 😊
