We are walking against suicide

Friday 11th Sep

As many of you know we lost one of our dearest and closest friends, Viktor almost 2 years ago to suicide. 

He was our best pal, someone who you could always chat to about anything, someone who could make you laugh and someone we miss every single day.

We want to help others who feel like there is no help and no other option. We want to not only support this amazing charity but we want to make people aware that charities like CALM exist.

So many people suffer from mental illness, no matter how big or small it is important to talk about it. 

This is why we are going to walk 26 miles one day in October (We still need to pick a date and route - we will keep you updated!) to raise awareness and money for CALM. An amazing charity who help those dealing with suicidal thoughts and mental health issues. You can find more about this amazing charity below.

Why walking? 

Walking is one of our favourite things to do. We walk everyday, together, alone, with Agatha, with friends and family. It helps us relax and is an amazing way to actually talk about things and get things off your chest! It also is a great way to unwind and enjoy the great outdoors. So why not do something we love to raise money for a charity we care so much about? 

Please help us reach our £300 target by sponsoring us! We will keep you updated!

More info about CALM below...

This October Liam and I are 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.
