A modified car club is helping to raise money for leading suicide prevention charity, PAPYRUS Prevention of Young Suicide.
A share of the profits from SadBoiRaceClub is being donated to PAPYRUS Prevention of Young Suicide as part of a new funding partnership which will help to save lives.
Car club owner Dan Pendry-Moore, who battled with depression, anxiety and suicidal thoughts, says he is delighted to be supporting the charity’s work across the UK.
“It was the preventative work which really attracted me to PAPYRUS. I like the fact that the charity is out there helping those who need it most during their darkest times,” he said.
“Many of my customers are young men who share a love of cars but it’s a sad fact that men in particular find it difficult to share how they are feeling. Lots of blokes bottle everything up and see getting help as a sign of weakness.”
Every month PAPYRUS will receive 10 per cent of the profits from the range of SadBoiRaceClub car products, clothing and merchandise.
Dan, from Bromsgrove in Worcestershire, set up the company in 2018 to raise awareness of mental health in the community. The 31 year-old says he feels driven to help others with their struggles.
“I had some very dark and bad times and looking back I’m certain I was battling depression for quite a while.
“Following proper care, treatment and help I’m now a lot better than I used to be and I’m determined to encourage others to embrace their mental health and help break down the stigmas through awareness.
“I feel very connected to my chosen charity, PAPYRUS, and I know my customers will be delighted to know they are supporting some incredibly valuable suicide prevention work,” he said.
