On Sunday 4th October 2020, the family and friends of Nick Huntley will be marking the 5th Anniversary of his untimely death with a charity memory walk in Tollymore Forest Park in Newcastle.

Telling us about the fundraiser, Nick’s Dad David said, “Nick struggled with mental health and addiction issues which ultimately led to his untimely death aged just 29. Like countless others dealing with bereavement, not a day goes by where Nick doesn’t enter our thoughts.

In an effort to help others struggling with their mental health, we have decided to host this fundraiser to support the incredible work of two local mental health charities- AWARE and Mind Your Mate, and Yourself.”

The family had an initial target of £2000 but have already raised an incredible £2,745 for AWARE and Mind Your Mate, and Yourself!

Lesley Wright, Community and Events Fundraising Officer at AWARE said “We are so grateful to the Huntley family for the support in memory of their beloved Nick. The funds raised for AWARE will make a huge difference to those in Northern Ireland who are struggling with their mental health, particularly at this difficult time.”
