Weʼve raised £2,633 to the memorial trust being established to honour the memory of Phil Merrison in supporting local mental health charities.
- Grimsby / Cleethorpes
- Funded on Thursday, 2nd July 2020
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Phil Merrison was my younger brother, son, devoted father of two wonderful children, beloved partner and selfless campaigner and supporter of mental health charities and support groups. Having suffered himself for many years he tragically succumbed to his inner demons on 21st February 2020 and took his own life. He created his own website www.aplatformtotalk.co.uk, started his own business and campaigned to raise awareness of the disease which had dominated his life for so long.
Phil was a lifelong sportsman and more recently embraced triathlon, competing up to the gruelling Ironman distance with his great friends at Cleethorpes Triathlon Club to publicise and tell his journey.
Through this medium we will start to create a legacy in his honour to ensure his remarkable endeavours and compassionate acts were not in vain and his name will live on.
