Three Dads Walking

300 Miles Of Hope

Andy Airey, Mike Palmer, Tim Owen


This edition has been signed on the title page by Tim Owen, Mike Palmer and Andy Airey

‘We were (and are) three ordinary dads who found ourselves in a desperate place we never expected to be, engulfed by pain and suffering beyond imagining. We were men who chose to build something positive from the shattered pieces of our lives. We wanted to do something and this is what it became … what we became.’

In memory of their young daughters – Sophie, Beth and Emily – who took their own lives, three dads set out on a 300 mile journey across Britain, from the windswept Lakeland fells and Peak District dales to the open plains of the Eastern fens. Putting one foot in front of the other, they captured the hearts of the nation; laughing together, crying together, fighting to be heard. This book, built around personal diary entries, grew from a place of great grief and loss, but is also about the power of speaking out, of friendship and hope (and blisters).

The Three Dads bear a heavy load, but they walk on for us all, finding light in the wild after the darkest times.
