Thanks for taking the time to visit our JustGiving page. The Cocoon Vehicles and Short Term Car Leasing team are raising money for PAPYRUS in memory of Ryan Nykolyszyn who took his life in October 2012.

The team comprises of the three Cocoon Directors: Myron Nykolyszyn, Rhys Adams and Paul Stone and our Accounts Administrator Andrea Fairman-Smith and her partner Simon Clarke.

We will be taking part in the 75km race of the Tour of Flanders in Belgium over Easter weekend to raise as much money as we can. We have already received help with our travel costs by some amazing sponsors as well as help from Chris Rider of Bike Pedlars of Retford.




Ryan was a fantastic son, brother and grandson. Ryan was big on sport, loved Golf, enjoyed football and followed baseball.


In fact you would always spot BBC sport on his PC when he thought we weren't looking.


Ryan's suicide was a massive shock to all of us at Cocoon Vehicles, and something none of us were expecting. We have all had experience with suicides attempts from family members in the past and this has been a massive shock to the system.


Even if you can only donate £1, it makes all the difference!
