Kellys Heroes - Bike ride 2020

Why we need your help

On 16th August 2020 12 riders will be cycling the extremely difficult route from John O'Groats to Lands' End. This event is in loving memory of our daughter Kelly to raise much needed funds and of course help raise awareness of mental health, as well as highlighting Kelly's story (below) so that people can read it, understand it and learn from it to break down barriers and prevent people from taking their own lives. 

All costs needed to organise and carry out this event will be paid for by each Rider as well as extremely generous commercial sponsorship which means EVERY PENNY we raise will be used to support Mental Health Charities such as MIND to help fund specific projects for people's Well Being. Let's break down these barriers together......

Kelly's story

On 18th December 2018, my daughter Kelly, took her own life. She started to suffer from anxiety and depression in March that year, but things really started to spiral downwards for her from around July time.

For a girl that was known for her happy go lucky attitude, someone that would help anyone at any time and lived life to the full, to deteriorate so quickly, it was not only heart breaking, but completely devastating. It has ripped out my heart and soul and left a huge void that will never ever be filled. Anger, grief, sorrow, bewilderment and above all else guilt are now huge factors in my life. 

Negative factors that I can let eat me up, or, I can use as fuel to give me the strength and resolve to get up every morning and try and make a difference. I don't want people to feel sorry for me, or my family, I want them to read Kelly's story, understand it and more importantly learn from it.
