A message from Trek Mate’s co-host Jude:
I’ve always been quite a private person and for the last year on social media that has been the case more than ever.
One year ago my family and I tragically lost our amazing 17 year old son after he sadly took his own life after struggling for years with a mixture of depression,resentment of being on Autistic spectrum , being a victim of bullying in several different schools over many years and eventually making some very poor choices in (so called)friends.
I am not making this post to look for sympathy or attention for my family but rather just to ask for your help in preventing teenage (or any) suicide in the future.
My amazing wife and I will be doing a great big 50k sponsored walk through the Peak District In July and we are trying to raise £800 for ‘Papyrus Prevention of Young Suicide’
I’m pleased to say we have already met 54% of our goal, however my family and I would be most grateful to all reading this if you could help us out in any small way though there is zero pressure to do so.
Thanks in advance to anyone who chooses to help.
