The family of a young estate agent who died in tragic circumstances on 1st April this year have raised nearly £14,000 in his memory via Just Giving, funds from which are to be donated to a charity dedicated to preventing male suicide.Photo credit: Just Giving23-year-old Alex Quealy, who is believed to have worked for his family’s estate agency in the town of Sittingbourne, took his own life after a night out socialising with friends in Canterbury.He was found soon afterwards by his younger brother at his home on the western outskirts of the city. Paramedics were called but Alex was pronounced dead at the scene.During the inquest at Margate Magistrates Court last week Coroner Ian Goldup said Alex had showed no signs of suicidal thoughts but had been struggling with “the pressures of modern life and dyslexia”, it was reported.His father Dee Quealy told Kent Live that “We would like to raise money in Alexander’s memory so that other young men realise they are not alone and can be offered the support they need through troubling times.“Alexander was a lovely young man, he was kind, generous, good looking, loved by his close family and friends and had so much to look forward to in life.”The family have set up a Justin Giving page to raise funds for Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM) which is campaigning to reduce the number of male suicides in the UK.It says suicide is the biggest killer of men under 45 and that 75% of all suicides are male.The charity will use the funds raised in Alex’s memory to carry on its work supporting men with suicidal thoughts, challenging a culture that prevents men seeking help when they need it, influencing government policy on the issue and supporting bereaved families.To make a donation to CALM visit the Just Giving page set up in Alex’ memory.
