The James effect 103m trek

As a lot of you will know we lost our beloved brother James Brown In November 2019 to suicide, James was the second inline of his good friends to take his own life closely followed by his best friend Levi the day before James’ funeral we want to raise awareness of male suicide as well as money for the mental health charity mind!

James was 24 years old and a very outgoing ambitious lad with the world at his feet, he could of went so far in life and been very successful, little did we know James suffered terrible with his mental health, this stemmed from losing his mam at the age of 8 followed by his dad at the age of 16 he struggled with life from then on out. 

James’ brothers Jonny and Dave along with a group of close friends have organised a trek in honour of James it’s going to be 103m around Abbeys Amble, this will be taking place on 22nd July and will finish on 24th of July James’s birthday. 

Along the way they would love to raise some money for MIND the mental health charity, so any amount you could donate towards this charity would be greatly appreciated!
