THE MOTHER of an Anglesey man says she is “overwhelmed” by the support shown by her local community group following his death.

Amlwch resident Kale Thomas, 20, had raised awareness of mental health through openly discussing his wellbeing and the challenges he faced living with psychosis.

He died on Friday, December 28, with family members believing he took his own life.

The Caru Amlwch community group set up a fundraising campaign in his memory and has so far managed to raise more than £3000 of its £5000 target.

Kale’s mum Kerry Davies-Jones wants to encourage those who are experiencing mental health issues to open up and talk about their problems.

“Kale was all about mental health and making people aware of his illness,” she said.

“It’s helped us as a family just knowing that people care and my children are so overwhelmed with the support we have received so far.”

Caru Amlwch say they hope to “support the family during their time of need and significant shock.”

They added that they hoped the money raised will go towards “unexpected costs such as the funeral, living costs and maybe a little break away once they (the family) feel ready.”

“Kale was very well thought of and respected within our town of Amlwch, the village of Penysarn and his colleagues from his time in Newcastle” a spokesman said.

“His passing will leave a huge void in so many lives, especially that of his loving family. Within his tributes, he has been described as a lovely, warm, kind and polite young man.

“There is such re-assurance and warmth to be felt in how we have all pulled together to support Kale’s family at this very difficult time.

“No mother or father should ever be in this position and together, we can help a little by showing our support to this family, who are suffering such a huge loss. every single penny raised will be given to them.”

A public service and committal will be held at Bangor Crematorium from 11.30am on Saturday, January 12.

The family request that smart casual dress code with blue clothing be worn during the service. Donations will also be accepted in memory of Kale and given to The London Appreciation Society via Awyr Las.
