Tritax Symmetry


Tritax Symmetry have chosen at SUDEP Action as their Charity of the Year 2020.

Jill Kittos, Executive Assistant, at the Tritax Symmetry Manchester office, lost her sister to SUDEP in September 2018 at the young age of 33. Jill wants to dedicate her time to raise awareness of SUDEP, and help SUDEP Action prevent needless deaths.

"Losing my sister has been the most heartache I have had. She was fun, generous and at the prime of her life. Each day is another step into the future without my sister, meaning it is a step with massive pain. I will continue to raise money for SUDEP Action, in her memory, and to help save other families from this heartache. The bereavement team at SUDEP Action were key in my family's journey after Faye’s death, and I want to ensure this service remains readily available. I am so pleased that Tritax Symmetry have chosen SUDEP Action as their Charity of the Year 2020."

Over the course of the next 12 months Tritax Symmetry will be taking up challenges and holding events to help raise money and vital awareness.

Jane Hanna OBE, CEO at SUDEP Action commneted, “We are delighted that Tritax Symmetry have adopted SUDEP Action as their Charity of the Year for 2020.  Knowing Jill and her colleagues are passionate about the cause, will help SUDEP Action get the awareness and support we urgently need to prevent unnecessary sudden deaths in the young.”
