Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit ourJustGiving page.

Our beloved father Tony passed away after taking his own life. He had been battling with severe anxiety - which manifested as terror and panic - for the past 6 years, until it eventually consumed him. No longer able to cope, or find a way out from this unrelenting inner turmoil, he courageously chose to end his life. 

Last year, during another particularly dark time, Tony stayed at Maytree and was met with kindness, warmth and empathy. They didn't charge us anything for his stay and the referral process was easy and straightforward, which was a God send. Maytree offered us all some much needed respite, and gave Tony the support he needed to cope and get through a really challenging time. 

We will be celebrating Tony's life on December 21st. Instead of flowers, we are inviting his friends and family to make a donation to Maytree - who run entirely on donations.  

Thank you on behalf of us all x
