Saving lives for Philip Millar

£10,051 of £5,000 goal

Raised by 278 people in 8 months
As you know my big son Philip passed away earlier this year at the tender age of 26, leaving behind a family who are heartbroken. Both his Mum Kathryn and I fought to try to get him help and treatment, but our pleas fell on deaf ears. Myself , my brother Gary and great friends Andy Mathesion and Gordon Davidson decided to use all of our contacts to raise much needed financial help for charities to assist addiction work in Northern Ireland, to try to help to save a life.
We decided upon a Sober October and for anyone who knows us running a marathon would have been easier !!

Thanks to your generosity we managed to raise £16789.00 in one month for our Sober October appeal Saving Lives for Philip Millar.
The plan has been and always will be is to educate, help people in need and ultimately save lives.
My son Philip passed away a year ago and my aim has been to launch a programme on his 1st Anniversary which is on 03rd March 2018. My goal has been ( with your help ) is to have a programme in place that we can fund or part fund for a year that will help people who can’t help themselves. I want to go back to you in a year and tell you exactly where your hard earned cash has gone and the results it has achieved. If at the end of our pilot programme we have helped to save one person’s life it will be money well spent.

Thank again so much for what you have done. God bless you.

Well everyone we are still receiving donations and have banked over £15000.00 with pledges for around another £1000+ if they come through.
To everyone who donated I thank you from the bottom of my heart and if you’ve pledged please take this as a gentile reminder.
I met with two Charities last week to discuss a pilot programme that we will fund directly with your money and I’m currently looking at the best way and most cost effective option to do so, but I will keep everyone updated.
Thank again so much fir what you have done.
