Matthew Percy – Rest In Peace

It is with great sadness that we report that Matthew Percy, a young person who has worked with us over a number of years has died. Matthew was an active member of the UK Youth Parliament for the constituency of Suffolk for a number of years, a campaigner for votes at 16 and more recently active with us through the BYC members the Church of England Youth Council, the National Council of Voluntary Youth Services and his work via the National Express Youth Panel.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Matthews family and friends at this time.
