"For Mum - in the hope of helping others"

In February 2022, Nicky and his families lives changed forever when they tragically lost their beloved mother Carol due to mental health illness. This added to the immense pain of losing their Uncle Paul, their mothers brother, in the same tragic circumstances 32 years previous.

With the help of his brothers, Matthew, Ieuan, Josh, their partners and good friends, Nicky is aiming to raise awareness of mental health and the challenges that it presents to people on a daily basis.

On Wednesday 3rd August 2022, Nicky, Matthew and a small group of friends will be trekking The Beacon Way walk covering a distance of 159km (99 miles) over the space of 5 days.

“It’s not an easy hike and it’s not in any of our comfort zones, it will be extremely difficult at times but we are willing to handle this challenging experience in the hope of making a difference.

Help us raise the awareness of mental health issues by supporting our cause and in turn, help each other by always being there for each other.” – Nicky

Nicky and his friends and family have decided to not only raise awareness but also raise vital funds for Newport Mind so that we can continue to listen, give support and advice and fight your corner.
