In their own words:
"The ‘You raise me up charity’ was founded by the late Jane Brooks and her husband Fraser in June 2011. The charity’s sole purpose is to raise funds to support families that have suffered the loss of a teenage child.
On 3rd May 2011 Fraser and Jane’s beautiful daughter Megan Brooks collapsed and died suddenly. As parents of Megan they found themselves in desperate need of comfort from those that had experienced the same loss and to see how they had coped and got through such a terrible time.
The aim of the charity is to be able to provide compassion, support and simply to be able to say “we totally understand” rather than “we cannot imagine what you are going through”.
