Walk For Bas

Out of the Shadows 2022

Walk to remember my little brother Bas 💙

Posted by Archie, Wednesday 24th August 2022

Two years ago I lost my little brother Sebastian (Bas).

My now-wife Sophie and I had just celebrated our engagement party, with Bas, one of my groomsmen, by our side, and two days later I received an indescribable call from my sister telling me he was gone.

Bas had taken his own life. He was only 21. 

I loved Bas with every ounce of my being and I miss him every day. 

He was the most loyal, kind, tough as nails and loving boy to everyone. Just unfortunately not himself.

I'm walking in Out of the Shadows Walk on World Suicide Prevention Day for the second year running to raise awareness about handling grief after losing a loved one to suicide, and finding the strength to put your hand up and seek help.

Please join me and 'Walk for Bas' to remember those we have lost to suicide and help others in need to speak up and seek help.
