April 2022 marks 10 years since 13-year-old Dominic Meacher, a student at Richmond School took his own life. In recognition of this milestone, friends and family gathered to take part in a 10-mile memory walk to remember Dom and raise money for two charities close to the families’ heart. Dominic is still very much missed by all those who knew him but the family wanted to use this occasion to do something positive and hopefully contribute towards helping to save the lives of people like Dom through their fundraising. Having set an original target of raising £500 the current total stands at over £1000 which has been raised in Dom’s memory. The money raised will be split between PAPYRUS, a charity dedicated to the prevention of suicide in young people and the Great North Air Ambulance who were first on the scene on the day Dom died. Students at Risedale School also held a bake sale which resulted in an additional £190 being raised. A JustGiving site has been set up and should anyone still wish to make a donation they can do so at the following address: https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/dom-meacher?utm_term=QRPDRaZWa
