Lights for Flights Fundraiser

In memory of Shaun we have illuminated our garden with Christmas lights cheeky elves and our growing homemade collection of novelty reindeer to hopefully bring some Christmas cheer at a difficult time of the year for so many families. 

Donations for Air Ambulance via this page and a bucket in the garden.  Donations for Life After via another bucket in the garden and raffle tickets at the door.

Shaun's bike was struck whilst cycling on the Glenshane Pass on 16th November 2017. Shaun later passed away in hospital on the 18th November as a result of the traumatic injuries sustained.

Shaun was 28 at the time of the accident and having just got married to Sinead 4 months previously were both over the moon to find out that they were expecting their first child due to arrive in July 2018 – little Ellen is now 3 and she’s such a central part of our family.

The loss of Shaun continues to be truly traumatic for Sinead, Ellen and all of the family but we are incredibly grateful for the care and support provided by The Air Ambulance NI, civilians and other paramedics who attended the scene which meant Shaun was able to donate his organs to others in critical need. Knowing that Shaun had caring people around him who did whatever they could at the scene is of real comfort to our family so we are delighted to raise funds for the absolutely critical service that Air Ambulance NI provides.

We have also received much needed support from Life After since the accident, the court trial ending in December 2020 & the Coroners Court in September 2021, just days after what should have been Shaun's 32nd birthday.  Life After has just recently received their charity status and supports people who have lost loved ones as a result of death on the roads, often leaving them vulnerable to suicidal thoughts and actions themselves.  It is the only service of this kind in NI and a lifeline for families of these tragic deaths who also often have to suffer horrific re-traumatisation of a court trial years later. No words will ever describe this pain but with Life After's practical understanding & support, road safety awareness, campaigning on families behalf we hope we can raise some much needed funds for them too.  If you would like to contribute a prize or sell some tickets you are welcome to get in touch.
