Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

I lost my 23 year old son Toby to suicide 4 years ago and have been rebuilding my life a step at a time. It was a total bolt out of the blue, I had no idea he was depressed. I can't bring my son back but if I can help prevent one young suicide by raising awareness of and raising money for PAPYRUS then it will be worth it. 

PAPYRUS are the only UK charity dedicated to preventing young suicide by raising awareness, campaigning, and running HOPELlineUK.  

I will be doing the trek in February 2016 in memory of my beautiful boy and will be celebrating my 60th birthday on day 2 of this 4 day trek through the beautiful Sahara Desert. I hope he would be proud of me.
