Story

Dave over the last few months has organised a Family Fun Day on 27th May to raise as much money as possible for the WAY charity. The event will take place at Lindow Cricket Club where Jonny spent time in his youth. At the event there will be inflatables, face painting, market stalls, soft play, raffle, auction, food / drink and live music in the evening. Please try and get down to the event but if you can’t please feel free to donate to the charity on this page.

Cheri, Rosie and Jess will be / have been taking on some challenges this year to raise money for WAY. So also keep an eye out for their next challenge.

In May 2023 Jonny was tragically taken so early on in his incredible life following a car accident in Marbella while celebrating his own stag do.

This was just weeks before his wedding where he was due to marry his soul mate, our lovely Cheri who he has left behind along with his 1 year old baby boy Leo, family and friends.

This tragedy has left a trail of devastation, and we want to support Widowed and Young to support other young families who have been affected by a tragedy like this.
