In May 2019 I am taking on a personal challenge of cycling from Leeds to Sheffield to raise money for SToRMS - a charity set up in memory of my friend Dan McAllister. The route is around 45 miles and will finish at Dan's memorial bench in Ecclesall woods.
Suicide is the biggest killer of men and women under 35 in the UK. “Suicides in Great Britain: 2016 Registrations” published by the Office for National Statistics revealed 5668 people took their own life in Great Britain in 2016. Of these 4,287 were men; men are three times more likely than women to take their own lives. Suicide deaths are preventable.
Please help me raise some money for a charity that has been doing fantastic work in raising awareness of mental health with a focus on young males.
