"No one can prepare themselves for the pain and heartache of losing a child."

A difficult few years…

by on Nov.10, 2020, under Fundraisers

Hi everyone. It’s been a while since we updated our website. As most of you know, we are a small local charity and organise fundraising in our spare time. We have been raising funds and issuing grants to families over the past few years but haven’t been updating our website, mainly due to a lack of time due to our daughter’s serious illness which she is now recovering from.

Then, of course, Coronavirus hit all of us and raising funds has been difficult as a lot of our fundraising channels have not been possible due to the inability to hold events.

I just wanted to write this very brief update to say that we will be back holding events in the near future and hope to see you all at one of them.

On Saturday 13th September, a team of 20 cyclists set off from Ripon to take part in the 2014 Sainsbury’s Big Bike Ride. Each rider represented their own store with their own story to tell. Raising funds for The Joseph Salmon Trust and representing Sainsbury’s Brighouse was Kieron Baker, 21.

“I like setting myself personal challenges whether is physical or educational. I also lost my mother to cancer when I was 17 and know what it feels like to lose somebody close.”Keiron

The Sainsbury’s Big Bike ride was certainly a challenge for wholesale nfl jerseys from china Kieron and it was a fitting time for the ride, following on from the Tour de France earlier in the year.

Kieron says “We started early in the morning from Ripon, North Yorkshire and went to various Sainsbury’s stores on the way including Harrogate, Bradford, Otley, Keighley, Halifax and finally Brighouse! Most of the route was very hilly and was used by the Tour de France cyclists. There were still British flags hanging in towns and writing on the roads!

Pictured above are Kieron’s colleagues and staff from the Brighouse store. Joining him at the finish line were Neil and Rachael Salmon from the Trust along with their daughters.

So how did Kieron feel at the finish?

“Relieved, exhausted and proud.” says Kieron.

Sainsbury’s Brighouse have chosen the Trust as their Charity of the Year for 2014/15 and we look forward to working with them and fundraising together.
