A beautiful boy with a beautiful soul, a beautiful heart and a beautiful smile
The Oli Leigh Trust has been set up to help various charities around the country to reduce the rates of teenage suicide and self-harm by offering training, education and support. We all have a responsibility and we all have a sense of duty to provide our children with a future.
Michelle is Oli's mother and a Trustee of The Oli Leigh Trust. Michelle's life has been torn apart by the loss of her beloved son Oli. Not a day goes by without her thinking about him and asking herself how he found himself in such a desperate state where he would take his own life without anyone around him realising. Michelle has vowed to work tirelessly to raise funds in Oli's memory to help reduce teenage suicide rates
Steven is Michelle's partner and a Trustee of The Oli Leigh Trust. Steven only knew Oli for the last 4 1/2 years of his life but shared with him many wonderful experiences and memories. Steven has undertaken to support Michelle and Scott in their efforts to fight the increase in teenage suicide rates
Scott is Oli's brother and a Trustee of The Oli Leigh Trust. Probably no one knew Oli as well as Scott. They had a special bond and friendship being so close in age. Scott has had to cope with the loss of his brother whilst studying for A-levels and applying to university. Scott is now studying medicine at The University of Leeds from where he continues to support the work of The Oli Leigh Trust in raising funds for suicide prevention training
