David Calder from the Porty Podcast recently interviewed Joanne from the organising team to find out how the festival will be different this year and to hear about a few of the events.
298 Tandem Against Suicide – Xani Byrne's Challenge – Porty Podcast
On Monday morning, a group of cyclists will leave the Cake Stand in Straiton Place Park on what, for one of them, will be an epic journey. Leading them will be Xani Byrne, brother of Alice Byrne, who disappeared on New Year’s Day in 2022. Neither she nor her body were found and the police concluded that she had taken her own life. This trip is all about raising awareness around the country about mental health and suicide and raising funds for related charities.To donate, click here: https://www.justgiving.com/team/TandemAgainstSuicideUKFor more information on the charities, click here: https://uksobs.org/And here: https://www.papyrus-uk.org/For Xani’s Facebook Page, click here: https://tinyurl.com/5ee28zf7
