Whats Occurring At "Men Don't Talk"
To Honour of Conor.
On a cold and wet Sunday in December Joe Powell and his amazing team of friends wore brightly coloured suits and cycled from Eastbourne Pier to Warrior Square, St Leonards and back completing a 35 Mile round trip to honour their friend Conor who sadly took his own life and raised a staggering £5000 for the Men Don't Talk mission to help men that are struggling often in silence.
Joe Powell said "Anyone that knew Conor would know that he loved his suits, any reason to dress up smart and he was on it."
So to honour him, and to make the ride a little more difficult, Joe and his friends completed the event in full suits in a range of colours.
It is fair to say that Conor was loved by many, he was a much loved family member and a "lovable, handsome man that was always there to help others" and "He'd always be there knowing the right things to say." as many of his friend have said and that he will be eternally known for.
Proceeds from the bike ride will go towards funding the Men Don't Talk "Warrior Weekend Retreat" and the low cost counselling service.
Joe and his team are aiming to walk the South Downs Way, which is 100miles in 5 days from Winchester to Eastbourne again in honour of Conor.
It's acts of kindness like this that help the Men Don't Talk cause tremendously.
The Men Don't Talk Team & the men who use the service would like to thank Joe, his friends and everyone who donated from the bottom of their hearts........
Conor has and will continue to make a difference to many men who are struggling, and that we are extremely grateful,
