About Smile for Joel
Smile for Joel was founded by Suzanne Richards, who lost her son, brother and father in the terrorist attack in Tunisia in June 2015.
This charity has been set up in their honor and in memory of all those that never came home. Funds raised go to VS to help support families effected by murder and terrorism.
On 26 June 2015 Suzy's family went on holiday but her son Joel, dad Pat and brother Ade were tragically killed along with 27 other British people during a terrorist attack. Her youngest son Owen was the sole survivor and is a true inspiration. Smileforjoel has grown from strength to strength and provides very needed support to shattered/ broken families who are victims of traumatic bereavement through homicide.
Suzy says “Losing three beloved members of your family to a terrorist attack is unimaginable and is something that no person should ever have to go through. Smileforjoel is a tremendous way to remember them. Through their legacy, they will bring hope to so many people’s lives. Their names will not be forgotten”. Suzy & Owen want to thank everyone for their continued support.
