We're fundraising for CALM

We're walking against suicide.

This October we're 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. We are walking the Tamsin Trail in Richmond Park in memory of our dear friend, Tris.

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 donate to our walk below.

Getting in training

Saturday 5th Sep
We’ve had a week of great hikes in Cumbria to start getting ourselves back in shape ready for the Lost Hours Walk. We’ve walked from Brampton to Lanercost Priory and along a stretch of Hadrian’s Wall - and back to Brampton; a stretch of the River Tyne at Lambley and Gilsland to Birdoswald and back along the Wall; and a loop from Brampton via Talkin Tarn. Many thanks for your support and if you’re able to share this and encourage others to sponsor us we’d be really grateful.
