Jenni said: “We started at the Farrier, and the 6.5 mile walk took us across fields to Barrowby, across to Denton Reservoir and then back along the Grantham canal to the Farrier. It was a great opportunity to walk and talk.”

“The bath also bears a flag with photos of these beloved individuals, including John’s son Jake and our daughter Evelyn,” said Jenni.

She added: “It’s a great talking point and helps to raise awareness of suicide being the biggest killer of under 35s in the UK.”
