On Sunday June 9th Leeds Supercar Meet will be gathering at SRS Automotive in Baildon for a “Supercars and Coffee” fundraising event. The event is being organised by celebrity tour manager Jason Holman, who has personal reasons for choosing local mental health charity Leeds Mind.
Jason, a celebrity tour manager by trade, has personal experience of losing friends and clients to suicide.
Jason said “In December 2017 a friend of mine, model Simone Linsell died by suicide, one of the most beautiful women I have ever met who just couldn’t cope any longer and this really shook everybody in the entertainment industry.”
After a two week tour in March of 2018, where great fun and laughter was had, actor Verne Troyer went back to his home of LA and a few weeks later he left us, this really had an enormous impact on me personally, we had worked together for seven years and become good friends over that time.”
Jason was long term friends with Sophie Gradon and has also worked with Mike Thalassitis from Love Island fame, both of whom have sadly died by suicide.
Gemma Green of Leeds Mind added “Suicide is sadly a common theme in the public eye and Jason’s motivation and passion for this event is clearly fuelled by his own personal experiences. We are proud to be the beneficiary of this special and unique event and can’t thank Jason and all involved enough.”
