Story

On the 25th May 2019 it will be one year since our daughter Afrika Yearwood took her own life (age 18). A recent investigation and inquest into her death in March this year identified numerous failings by two Leeds Health care trusts and ' lamentable' missed opportunities to provide support for her mental health problems resulting in the coroner serving a 'prevention of deaths order on both Leeds Community Health care trust and Leeds & York partnership Trust demanding improvements to be made to prevent future deaths of young people transitioning between childrens and adults mental health services . If this saves another young persons life Afrika 's life will not have been in vain. Afrika had a passion for sport and played football from age 5 to 17 , at age 17 Afrika and her friend Ellie played for Castleford and won the league before hanging their boots up . Words cannot describe how much Afrika is missed , the void she has left behind, how many hearts are left broken and the impact she had on so many peoples lives , To celebrate Afrikas life we have decided to raise funds for Rothwell Clusters Emotional and wellbeing service to provide additional counselling support for young people , this will enable young people to access support and early intervention . Afrika loved a physical challenge so we have decided to challenge ourselves to the Liverpool to Leeds canal bike ride over two days on the 15/16th June which will see us riding over 125 miles . Both locally in Leeds and nationally we are seeing a new phenomen of suicide in young people age between 16-25
Our 13. team members that have joined us are all pretty amazing and want to make a difference to young peoples mental health .
