The Hackney Half
Many people in the Raughton Head community will remember the Colville family, who lived at The Ashes for 10 years before moving to Devon. Tragically Marcus, who was a medical student at Newcastle University, took his own life in December 2017.
The whole family are very grateful for the support they have received from their old friends in Cumbria at this difficult time and continue to have very fond memories of their time in the county.
The family have set up a charity called ‘Marcus in Mind’ to fund research to actively identify and help young people who are at risk of suicide.
On 20th May my daughter Rosie and I are joining the whole family and friends in running the Hackney half marathon to raise money for this charity which has already raised a lot of funds thanks to the generosity of so many friends of Marcus and his family.
This is going to be an interesting personal challenge for me to complete as I broke my pelvis last January and hope that I will be able to complete it in a reasonable time!
We would all be very grateful if you would consider supporting me in raising money for ‘Marcus in Mind’. You can donate through the following link;
