On 8 February 2006, Ellen Mezzetti died in her sleep from epilepsy, aged 16. Ellen leaves behind her parents John and Lynne and two brothers Jack and Henry. They have all spent the last year coming to terms with their tragic loss. This will obviously continue throughout their lives and to their credit they’re doing this with great dignity.Ellen is an integral part of the Mezzetti and Facey family and will never be forgotten. A memorial fund has been set up in memory of Ellen. They have already raised £600 by holding a charity rounders match in August 2006. Cromer High School (where Ellen attended) held a performance, which Ellen was due to star in. This was held in memory of Ellen and raised in excess of £1,000 for charity.
On 16 June 2007, Joey Mezzetti, Andy Kett, Rob Bacon, Mark Claxton and Mat Willimott are all cycling from Land’s End to John O’Groats. They will cover approximately 1,000 miles over 7 days, averaging 140 miles per day. Two drivers in a camper van will support this. The cyclists will fund the tour and all money raised will go into the Ellen Mezzetti Memorial Fund.
