The Three Dads Walking - including Shouldham’s Tim Owen - release book ahead of their third charity walk





Three dads who lost their daughters to suicide have launched a book sharing their inspiring stories just weeks before setting off on their third charity walk.

Three Dads Walking is made up of Shouldham’s Tim Owen, Mike Palmer and Andy Airey, who have tirelessly campaigned and fundraised for suicide prevention to be part of the national curriculum.

The dads have also been recently nominated by MPs for the Petitioner of the Year award.

“Three Dads Walking: 300 Miles of Hope” is the title of their new book, which will be released on April 4.

The book explains Tim, Mike and Andy’s journey through grief and how they united to walk up and down the country to raise money for PAPYRUS Prevention of Young Suicide.

Their work is in memory of their young daughters - Sophie, Beth and Emily - who took their own lives.

The book is released shortly before the dads embark on their third charity walk which will take them on a 500-mile route covering new ground by walking from Scotland through the eastern counties of England.

The book - with the foreword written by TV presenter Dan Walker- is told in three distinct parts by each dad and aims to be a beacon of hope for anyone struggling.

Tim Owen, Andy Airey and Mike Palmer, aka the three dads walking have obtained over 100,000 signatures for parliament to discuss if age related suicide awareness should be taught in schools
