Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

I am going to be giving up drinking any alcohol for a full year, although I don't drink every weekend  I'm still going to be missing the events I look forward to every year such as ... rounders presentation, lowerhouse pride, My birthday Christmas and new year ect, you will have all seen the after pictures (haha) when I do drink I drink TOO much!!.

I am raising money for this charity as it's very close to mine and my husbands hearts. For those that know us know that in 2010 our lives changed forever!.  What should have been a happy time planning our wedding with our best man and bridesmaids turned into a nightmare. Our best friend and best man kiefer Dixon only 20 years old took his own life!. The devastation it caused was horrific for all involved,  our wedding went ahaead but just wasn't the same, instead of a best mans speech we had a minutes silence. 7years on and although it has got easier the pain never goes away.

I also lost another friend to suicide previous to this. Luke smith was 1 of the worlds cheekiest, fun loving, loud personalities I have ever come across, who also thought that suicide was the only way out!.

Recently on Facebook I have seen so many suicides and it just makes me feel so sad and helpless that the devastation we once had to go through now other families are having to do the same.  

If I raise enough money to help just 1 person then I will more than happy...... nobody deserves to leave this world that way!!.

Please please please donate! Even if it's just a pound, you never know your pound may save somebody's life!. 

THANKYOU X X
