Foster’s Friends

Lost Hours Walk

We are fundraising for CALM

We’re walking against suicide. 

We’re walking for Lewis ❤️

This October I'm taking on the Lost Hours Walk to deal with grief differently and defiantly, and to remember our sons, daughters, brothers, sisters, mothers, fathers, partners and friends lost to suicide.

Here’s why:

On average, 125 people take their own lives every week in the UK.

75% of people who take their own lives are not known to mental health services or have not been in touch with mental health services within the last year.

135 people are directly affected by every suicide.

We’re coming together across the country to send a message that that’s not ok. We’re taking to the streets, parks, pavements, public footpaths and promenades to walk against struggling in silence, against being alone, against living miserably.

Anyone can hit crisis point. CALM’s free, anonymous and confidential helpline and webchat are there for anyone who needs support. They’re open from 5pm-midnight every day. Just £8 is enough to fund a professionally-trained helpline worker to answer a call that could save a life. Your support will help fund CALM’s life-saving services when they’re needed most.

You can join my team or donate to my walk below.

Fuck suicide. Mental health is such an important thing. One of my friends recently killed themselves and none of us knew he was going through troubling times. I went through the steps years ago myself and sometimes still get those thoughts. Things like this really make me proud of friends I know. Good on you for this a Rachel! Sending lots of love to you!
