Deepbridge is delighted to have signed up to support the ‘Colours For Peace’ initiative on 20 March 2018, and we urge other companies to join us.
20th March 2018 will represent the 25th Anniversary of the IRA’s bombing of Warrington and the deaths of 3 year-old Johnathan Ball and 12 year-old Tim Parry.
In memory of the boys and to acknowledge the unique work that continues to be carried out as their legacy, businesses are invited to encourage their team to dress in the colours of The Tim Parry Johnathan Ball Peace Foundation.
Since its launch, the charity has become the leading UK provider of support to victims of terrorism and to young people and communities whose lives have been affected by extremism. The Foundation’s work has unfortunately never been more relevant with a record number of victims of terrorism requiring support from the Foundation in 2017, including survivors from Manchester, Westminster Bridge, Borough Market, etc.
Tim Parry’s mum Wendy Parry, who set up the foundation along with her husband Colin Parry in memory of the two young boys, said: “We are asking businesses to join this dress down day event in memory of the boys and a means of supporting our 25th Anniversary ‘Unique Achievement’ campaign.”
Individuals are encouraged to wear green (the colour Tim’s school uniform), blue and/or white.
Those who take part are asked to make a minimum £1 donation to the Foundation.
To sign up and to pledge support, please contact Kate Deakin at the Tim parry Johnathan Ball Peace Foundation.

"If my son becomes a symbol for Peace, and gives everyone a sense of hope after so much tragedy, that will be Tim’s Unique Achievement."
