We Mind & Kelly Matters was formed in 2019 after the devastating loss of our beautiful daughter, sister and friend Kelly Francesca Hewitt.
Our initial aims were to raise much needed funds for mental health and bereavement charities such as MIND and SOBS, so that anyone affected by suicide would receive help and support.
The support we have received from the very early days has been amazing. Kelly touched so many lives and will be in our hearts forever, so this charity is her legacy, we cannot let people suffer on their own.
Through the generosity of public donations at fundraising events, and the huge success of Kelly’s Heroes cycle ride in August 2020, from John O Groats to Lands’ End, in 18 short months, we raised in excess of £100,000, leading us onto developing a longer-term plan in Kelly’s memory.
This has enabled us to launch our support services led by our newly appointed CEO.
