Raising money to place a bench in memory of Matt at Clevedon Marine lake

by Guy & Matt in Bristol, England, United Kingdom

Hello lovely people!

We’re back - who’d have thought it?

We tried our best to give up running but we’ve become a little hooked - how annoying! 

Somehow, we are almost a week away from a 50km Ultra marathon in Bournemouth on the 16th October. 

As many of you know this is the anniversary of Matt’s death so we thought it was very fitting to remember him in this way as the dates lined up perfectly. 

Just last week would have been Matt’s 22nd birthday - a milestone that brings with it a whole host of emotions. It brings a smile to our faces to be able to sit down and write this post to all of you lovely folk who have supported us along the way!

As a keen skinny dipper, Matt was always a big fan of going for a swim over in Clevedon. For this run we thought it would be nice to raise money to place a bench in memory of Matt. Somewhere people can go and sit and remember him and maybe even skinny dip whilst they’re at it. We have been in contact with the guys over there to see if we can make this happen. 

To do this we need your help in raising some money to make this a reality with a promise of all left over funds being donated to a local mental health charity!

If you'd like to support us please donate here!

Matt and Guy
