    Leeds, UK
    Funded on Tuesday, 5th February 2019

    Don't have time to donate right now?


    Mick was happy, in love and a doting Dad, he had a huge circle of friends and was always the life and soul at any party. He loved sport and socialising and was always there to support both friends and family through any issues, offering advice and counsel to help many people overcome obstacles that they never thought they could.

    He was loved and adored by Kellie, Max, Harry and Elizabeth and by all his family, especially his Mum and Dad, Beverley and John (or R'Bev and Mo as he affectionately called them) along with his sister, brother, nephews and nieces. In fact everyone loved Mick, he was that guy that everyone wanted to be friends with.

    Mick lost his battle with his mental health problems when to the outside world he had the perfect life. He was making plans to extend a new home, arranging parties over the festive season and immersing himself in family life. To everyone he was happy go lucky, but he was fighting his own personal battle.

    Mental health problems do not discriminate. It isn't a problem that only affects lonely people or people that are sad. It impacts all colours and creeds, all sexes and ages. Approximately 1 in 4 people in the UK will experience a mental health problem.

    Mental health support in the UK is significantly underfunded and in real terms funding to help support sufferers is reducing.

    If you can, please help support Mick's memory, don't buy that cup of coffee on your commute, drink one less pint of beer in the pub, stay in for one Friday night and know that you have made a difference.

    Thank you.

      let us remind people that it’s okay not to be strong all of the time and to talk about how they’re feeling. Sending lots of love in this hard time and good luck with the campaign. X
