Charity Registration No. 1082335

Story

In January last year my brother Josh was killed in a road accident in Vietnam.  This tragedy has devasted my family but we are now slowly putting our lives back together.  In our grief, we have been fantastically supported by The Compassionate Friends, a self help group for bereaved parents.   TCF are now opening up a special service for siblings who have lost brothers or sisters and I want to raise some money to help them.  Your pain is to dig deep, my pain was to compete the Brighton Triathlon on 23rd September and I'd really appreciate your support.    

UPDATE:

Hey all,

I've since completed the Brighton Triathlon coming in 6th out of around 120 or so and a time of 1hr 48 mins. Very happy with that and knowing I was doing this in honour of my brother and those at The Compassionate Friends drove me forward!

I know I've often asked you for donations to various causes but this was  my first sporting event since Josh died and it really means a lot that I can help such an important charity.  So please give what you can - thanks.   

Remember - donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer. So it’s the most efficient way to donate - I raise more, whilst saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

Every brother is a star!
