Olly Hare was one of the kindest, most talented and fun-loving people you could ever wish to meet. When he took his own life shortly before his 23rd birthday, family and friends were devastated.
We formed Olly's Future to celebrate Olly's life and to raise awareness of suicide in young people. We believe it is crucial to equip people with life-saving skills to help prevent suicide, which is the single biggest killer of men under the age of 45 in the UK.
To continue Olly's legacy, and to help us fund suicide prevention training, please support us by donating to:

To date, Olly's Future has funded suicide prevention training for 662 people, including staff members at Christ's Hospital School and UCL, where Olly studied, as well as staff from One Housing Group.
We work with leading suicide prevention charity, PAPYRUS, to deliver the training.
This training is invaluable in helping those who may be thinking about ending their lives.
Ann, Olly's mum, has recently become a trainer in the two-day ASIST (Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training). Above, she's pictured with her first course participants.
On Saturday 23rd March, we are holding our annual Love and Light Party on a Thames party boat. Join us for a magical night.
We are proud to have established two annual awards in Olly's memory:
1. Oliver Hare Altruism Award at UCL (University College London), where Olly got a 1st in History.
2. Oliver Hare Cup presented every year by the Lord Mayor of London for the Best Musician of the Christ's Hospital School marching band, which Olly used to lead as Drum Major.
Blackbird by Paul McCartney.
This was one of Olly's favourite songs, and it was played at his funeral at Christ Church in Worthing.
