the jack pullen foundation
The Jack Pullen Foundation was founded in memory of Jack Taylor Pullen, who tragically lost his life in a river accident in 2016, aged just 16 years old.
In Jack's legacy, his family wanted to create a charity in his name; offering water safety education through social media and also to local schools and communities.
We also want to be able to provide bereavement counselling for those families and friends who have lost somebody specifically to a water-related incident.
Furthermore, we want to be able to install PRE (Personal Rescue Equipment) throughout the whole of the UK's 2,200 mile stretch of waterways; especially inland waterways.
We walk side-by-side to those 700 families who lose somebody every single year to the water in the UK. We are determined to lower this number, infact, STAMP IT OUT!
We are proud to stand with so many other families whose lives have changed forever through losing a loved one to drowning, and sharing our stories to help others out there and to STOP THIS FROM HAPPENING.
The Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service have launched their Water safety Campaign this week which features this video; a hard-hitting reality of the devastation that is left behind when a loved one is lost to drowning.
PLEASE take 10 minutes of your day to watch every video. It will change your life and the way you view Water safety.
Don't be a statistic and act now! EDUCATE yourself, your friends, your loved ones because there really is no rewind button on this feeling, you can never think "I wish I would have known more" because now is your chance to LEARN.
