    "My brother, Matthew, took his own life on Saturday 30th September 2017. He left behind a four year old son, as well as heartbroken family and friends. In the aftermath of this tragedy we all needed help. In addition to what one might expect in terms of feelings of grief a plethora of other maladies descend which are far less expected. I have suffered from a combination of anxiety and depression in addition to what I can only describe as a complete stripping away of certainty in almost every aspect of my life. It has caused me to reassess everything. My family and Matthew’s friends will all have had to contend with their own manifestations of grief.

    One constant for all of us seems to have been the lack of help available through the NHS or the delays involved in accessing that help. There is still a disproportionate burden laid at the doors of charities in order to offer the help that the victims of grief desperately need. So, I put my mind to how I might make a contribution. 

    With the invaluable help of my Brother-in-Law, Joe and his wonderful production skills, I have recorded a version of a song which I performed at Matthew’s funeral. Thank you also to my beautiful sister, Anna, for providing some great backing vocals. You can listen to and download the song via the following link.

    The minimum purchase price I am requesting is £3.05. This is the average cost of a pint in the UK just to give you a sense of just how little a sacrifice I am asking for. The maximum purchase price is unlimited. I have decided that I will match the total donations myself up to the first £1000. All donations will be split between two charities: SOBS (Survivors of Bereavement by Suicide) and CALM (Campaign Against Living Miserably). Suicide is the biggest killer of men who are under 50, in the UK. 

    Thank you in advance for the help that you could offer to others who have to contend with such a tragic event."

    I am Matthew's 3rd cousin once removed. He never knew me but as I am interested in family history I was updating our mutual family tree and came across Matthew's tragic story. So shocked and saddened.

    Keep on talking about this so we help people reach out. A lot of progress has been made in the last 10 years, but too many people still take their own lives.

    SOBS exists to meet the needs and break the isolation of those bereaved by the suicide of a close relative or friend. Many of those helping have, themselves, been bereaved by suicide.
