Ross Shakles mental health awareness

Hey guys,  

So we have been offered donations for the bench and at first we wanted to do this ourselves but with so many offers to help and people wanting to be involved  we thought we would set up this page. 

Ross was a very happy, strong and bubbly person who cared for many. He gave us all fond memories and love.

Young men have to much pride. Its OK to not be OK.  Please speak out .

Anything raised over our target will be sent to the search and rescue charity as well as the charity MIND.


Mental health is something that needs to be addressed and people really need to be able to open up to the ones that our closest to. We feel really strongly that another life cannot be lost in vain, life is so hard sometimes and we as a society are clearly not able to share these worries or don't know what to do when we hear it from others. Let's start to break these barriers down and at least learn something from all the heartache that the last few weeks have given us.  We simply cannot loose anymore young people with the potential of the world at their feet. Money, housing, friendships, arguments and more either individually or all of the above play a part in our mental health so when people reach out the support needs to be there to help them.  There are amazing charities out there but without our support there is only so much they can do so for anyone that wants to help and donate lets use this to support the fantastic charities that are out there in the hope that maybe at least one person has a place to reach out to when the weight of the world is on their shoulders. 

One love, one life ❤
