Story

Remembering Rich Sheppard

We invite you to join us in remembering our dear colleague and friend, Rich Sheppard. Rich's life was tragically cut short in May 2022 by the biggest killer of men aged 15-49, suicide.

Rich brought joy and humour to our workspace as part of the Digital team, leaving an indelible mark on all who knew him. His absence leaves an immense void not only at Troy, but in the hearts of those who loved him, most acutely, his young daughter Summer. Just five years old at the time, her world was forever changed by the loss of her father.

Honouring Rich's Legacy

In the wake of this tragedy, Troy embarked on a mission to honour Rich's memory and support causes that work in helping prevent suicide and support for anyone impacted by suicide. To accomplish this, Troy have established the Richard Sheppard Discretionary Trust.

The Trust was initially set-up with Rich's daughter Summer in mind, to benefit her when she reaches adulthood and give her a brighter future.

50% of the Trust is set aside to benefit two incredible charities: Pete's Dragon and the Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM). These organisations tirelessly work towards preventing suicide and provide crucial support to individuals struggling with mental health challenges and supporting their families.

Join Us in Making a Difference

Thank you for contributing to this meaningful cause. your donation will make a tangible difference in the lives of many. Every contribution, big or small, will go towards:

· Supporting Families: Through the trust, you can help secure a brighter future for dependents of families impacted by loss.

· Raising Mental Health Awareness: Pete's Dragons provide suicide bereavement support to families in rural areas across the whole of Devon: www.petesdragons.org.uk

· Standing Against Suicide: CALM continue their vital work in suicide prevention with their helpline open from 5pm–midnight, 365 days a year: www.thecalmzone.net | 0800 58 58 58

Tour de Troy: Cycle Challenge

To raise further awareness, several members of the Troy family have committed to cycling the 125 miles from the Draper offices in Southampton, Hampshire all the way down to the Troy offices in Exeter, Devon! You will be able to follow along as we will post updates on our social media channels and see how the rest of the team at Troy will be supporting this challenge virtually.

By contributing today, you honour Rich's memory, celebrate his life, and create a positive impact on individuals and families fighting mental health battles in amplifying the message that no matter what you’re going through, life is always worth living.

    Thank you so much to all who have donated! June 19, 2024, is a date that will live long in the memory of those at Southampton Football Club – the day they had the privilege of witnessing an electrifying football display as Troy team members took to the pitch. The state-of-the-art dome training facility was illuminated as much by some inspired and prodigious on-pitch displays as it was by the beautiful ceiling spotlights. The spectacular event was dedicated to raising funds for the Richard Sheppard Trust – something close to all our hearts.

    With just under a week left of Movember, the Troy Team are sporting some strong 'taches around the branches and offices. Even the ladies got involved. Do you think they should take up permanent residence? We are very grateful for everyone's efforts, and all the donations to date. It will really help some worthy causes. We know if Rich were here with us, he'd be showcasing a very well groomed moustache right now.
