£150raised of £200 target by 13 supporters

    Weʼve raised £150 to help Ian's Chain continue supporting families who have lost a family member through taking their own life..

    Funded on Thursday, 21st September 2017

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    Ian's Chain was formed in 2013 by my friend Alan Savill after the loss of his Son Ian. In the memory of Ian, Alan is helping families that have also lost a loved one in this way. So far Ian's Chain has raised funds to buy a camper van which is loaned out to families for them to have time away to grieve and is supporting the running of local SOBS groups to offer support.

    According to statistics from the Samaritans over 6,000 people per year take their own lives in the UK, that's 6,000 grieving families that need support and the specialist help to come to terms with their loss.

    Alan has dedicated a huge part of his life to help with awareness and prevention of suicide along with helping those that have lost a loved one. He has appeared on LBC radio as a guest a number of times, advised local governments, organised concerts both in the UK and America.

    Please support Alan and Ian's Chain to continue this great work, thank you.

      Thank you everyone for your donations, most of you will know I completed the half marathon in 2h 39. I will now forward the money on to Ian's Chain who will be most grateful and use your money to help those that need support.

      Thank you for your kind donations so far. The furthest I have run so far is 8.25 miles so this certainly won't be a walk in the park for me but I will complete it! Please share and offer your encouragement, feel free to cheer me along on the day too if you like.
