Out Of The Blue is a fundraising group that was established in memory of Will Beckett who took his own life at Beachy Head in January 2013 aged 42.  This tragedy came as an incredible shock for his family and friends – it came simply ‘Out Of The Blue’.

Will’s family was supported, guided and inspired by three charities – Winston’s Wish, Dragonflies and The Beachy Head Chaplaincy Team and since then has raised an incredible amount of money for the three charities.

Mark Pybus

Director Beachy Head Chaplaincy Team

Thank you from a friend of someone rescued.

 
I have only learned today for the first time about your Chaplaincy Team and the fantastic commitment you have to saving the lives of complete strangers intending to commit suicide by jumping from Beachy Head.

I have only learned about you today because on New Years Eve, when most people were out enjoying themselves, your team was patrolling on The Head and one or more of you intervened and saved an unhappy, emotionally disturbed, suicidal friend of mine from death.

Your courage, humility and selflessness are an example to us all.
Thank you so much for my friend’s life. God Bless You.
