    Story

    We have a dilemma and we need YOUR help!!

    Let's help Save The Male!

    On November 19th 2 Durham University students are on a mission to get as FAR AWAY from Durham as possible in 36 hours without spending a penny on travel as part of the Jailbreak for Charity Challenge!

    Can you help us leave the UK and chill out somewhere awesome?

    We need to raise £750 in order to take part in the challenge as well as additional donations to help us on our journey!

    ALL PROCEEDS WILL GO TO DIRECTLY TO CALM (CAMPAIGN AGAINST LIVING MISERABLY)

    Did you know, suicide is the BIGGEST KILLER of Males under the age of 45?
    And did you also know that males suicide accounts for 76% of all UK suicides?

    Crazy right? But this needs to stop.

    Our aim is to help raise awareness for the important issue of male suicide and help prevent this through the promotion of signifying the importance of speaking openly about mental health.

    So please, before we go on our Jailbreak and flee as far as we can, give up the time to read up on CALM and if possible donate as much as you can.

      Good luck Matt! Sorry it's last minute but I thought I'd already donated: looks like I'm making that up- lol I'm sure that if you're in Amsterdam your guardian angel is with you- he loved it there! Xx
