This campaign is inspired by Bobbie Black who died aged 23 when she lost her battle with her mental health problems. On the 22nd October, the anniversary of her death, family and friends wear something purple or turquoise in memory of her.
In 2016, Martin Wailes, a close friend of Bobbie’s died unexpectedly from Sudden Adult Death Syndrome. Purquoise Day is in memory of Bobbie, Martin and other young people who have died too early.
It is easy to take part – just wear something purple or turquoise on 22nd October in memory of our friends and young people who died too soon.
You can also donate money to a charity of your choice or support me in raising money for my local mental health charity, Middlesbrough and Stockton Mind or Martin's mum, Sue, raise money for CRY - Cardiac Risk in the Young.
To donate click the Just Giving buttons above the photos.
