The J Walkers

Lost Hours Walk

We are fundraising for CALM

We're walking against suicide in memory of our dear friend J. 


We lost J to suicide 5 years ago.  J had many passions in life, from music, beer and steam railways to name but a few. This October we'll be walking a 14 mile stretch of the Ouse Valley Way from Lindfield to Lewes in his memory. Lewes is where many of us met J in college,  and as such is a place which holds many happy memories of times spent together in the local pubs. 

We're proud to be raising money for the vital work CALM helps carry out. 

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 the team below.
