A new charity dedicated to helping suicide bereaved families is now supporting almost 100 people across the county, writes Becca Gliddon.
Pete’s Dragons, based in Exeter Road, Exmouth, is a UK-wide charity set up by Alison Hill in memory of her brother, Pete Wicks, who killed himself in 2010, aged 24.
The Dragons are gearing up for their major fundraising event of the year – a black tie charity ball.
The last remaining tickets for the event, on Saturday, November 5, at Ocean, on The Esplanade, are selling fast.
Funds raised by the ticket sales will be ploughed back into the charity, helping fund the therapy room and holiday home, offering respite to families coming to terms with suddenly losing a loved-one.
The charity also provides a complete care package to families affected by suicide.
Alison said watching Pete’s Dragons take off in the community, supporting 97 people, had been ‘amazing’.
Tickets for the ball are £50 per person, or £450 for a table of 10, to include a three-course meal, live music from Adam Isaac, games, raffle and live auction, plus a firework display.
Tickets for Pete’s Dragons’ black tie charity ball are available from www.petesdragons.org.uk or on 01395 277780.
