In Memory of Rees

reesWe were all saddened to learn of the passing of our friend and colleague Rees Ballard who died suddenly in April 2016.    Rees had been a long-term volunteer with the Wilderness Foundation UK, acting as a youth mentor to vulnerable young people in Essex.   He supported both the TurnAround Project and Out There and made a valuable and impacting contribution to the lives of many young people.   He will be sadly missed.

In consultation with Rees’ family, we would like to create a lasting legacy and continue the work that Rees was directly involved in.   If you would like to make a donation to the charity, which will be applied to a memorial fund in Rees’ name, please use the online giving form below:
