I'm fundraising for CALM

I’m walking against suicide.

In memory of my best friend, best man and Godfather to Lyla & Liam, James Grant who passed away in August 2017 - CALM do some fantastic work in supporting those that have lost loved ones to suicide and to help those in need.  Please give anything you can afford to support this vital cause.  


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.

You are walking for everyone who has lost someone and everyone still here and I thank you. My money is some of what I would've given my niece this Christmas and I really appreciate people like you who work towards stopping this terrible illness.
