A family will leap from a plane this weekend to raise money in memory of their much-loved son and brother. Julie, Anthony and Hannah Richards will complete a skydive on Sunday, June 10 to raise funds for You Raise Me Up, a Polegate charity that supports families who have suffered the loss of an adult child between age 16 and 25.
For the Richards family, that loss came last year when Sam took his own life. Writing on her fundraising page, Sam’s mum Julie said: “Last year Anthony, Hannah and I tragically lost the most kind, loving and happy person we knew – our lovely son/brother Sam.
“His smile was contagious, laughter followed him everywhere and his bright personality filled every room. Sam always had time for everyone, he cared greatly for his family, girlfriend and friends. “He was passionate about many things, those who know him would instantly think of cars and music.
“Sam was one in a million; he has left an irreplaceable hole in many people’s lives. He has left us all with such happy memories, and he will continue to make us laugh and smile because his stories will live on. He will always be a part of our lives, he will forever be the greatest son, grandson, brother, nephew, cousin and friend.”
