My story

[p]On Saturday 6th October 2018, my Dad, Alistair Collier, was paddling in his kayak as part of an organised race and due to the adverse weather conditions was separated from the racing group and stranded at sea. He was located after an extensive and dedicated search and rescue operation on Sunday afternoon and was, regrettably and extremely sadly, pronounced dead at the scene.[/p][p]6 months on from that horrific weekend, I sit and type these words still feeling overwhelmed by the loss of my brilliant Dad. I miss him every day. As a family, we have managed to raise over £10,000 in memory of our fantastic Dad, and this activity has made what has been a terrible time just that little bit better. [/p][p]One of my Dad's proudest achievements was running The Great North Run. This year, I've signed up to both the Great North Run and the Birmingham Half Marathon to raise money for the RNLI in an effort to continue to show thanks for the work that they do. I am not a runner, so this should be interesting![/p][p]Please help me give back to the organisation that provided comfort and strength at a time when the feeling of utter helplessness engulfed my whole family. Please help me say thank you to an organisation that works tirelessly so that families do not have to experience the devastation we have endured.[/p][p]Thank you for your support, and for your generosity.
