Story

On the 11th April 2022, I joined an exclusive club that no one wants to be a member of. My brother, Andrew, took his own life. He had struggled with mental health issues for a few years but we didn‘t see it coming.

A group of family and friends are cycling the C2C route across England, during the first week in August, in his memory and are splitting any donations between Samaritans and Mind, in a bid to reach out to people who are in a similar position.

Tragically, one of the group, my best buddy Iain, also lost his brother, Alastair, in similar circumstances, so we cycle in both of their memories.

Suicide, especially in young men, is an all too common issue. If our fundraising can just stop one person from experiencing the pain and anguish that our brothers felt and seeing them seek another way out, it will be all worth it.

    We did it! Quite a slog in the heat and 12964 feet of climbing through the Lake District and Pennines. I’m sure our brothers are having a bit of a smile at us, doing this on some of the hottest days of the year . Great North Run next year!! Quite a bit shorter but a lot tougher for non-runners like me! Again many thanks for your very kind support and donations. They are on there way to a very good cause. R.I.P. Alastair and Andrew we’ll never forget or stop thinking of you. Iain and Phil. X

    We made it , and more!! Thank you to everyone who has donated, whether Andrew was part of your family, a friend, someone who came in then out of your life (but obviously touched it in some way) or you just gave anonymously. We're off on quite a bike ride in his honour. Padded shorts are ready to do him proud. Again, from all of his family, many thanks for showing your support. Phil x

    Thank you for all of your kind words and donations. Andrew was such a special person to his family. We’re over half way to the target after only 24 hours. We will do him proud.
