Grassroots Suicide Prevention

We support community members to prevent suicide, one life at a time.

Charity Registration No. 1149873

Story

Me and my mate Frit have taken on this challenge to walk 50km (about 14 hours) non-stop to raise money and awareness for Grassroots Suicide Prevention. We are known hence-forth as the banana fritters! (very fitting).

There is still a lot of stigmatism and widespread ignorance regarding mental ill health in the general population. We need charities like these to continue to raise awareness and support. 


Personally I have close family members who have and are still suffering from mental illness and I would not wish that upon anyone or their families.

What I love about this chosen charity is the creative and practical work they're doing and I've also heard they're a great bunch to work for!


Did you know?

Suicide is the single biggest killer of men aged under-49 in the UK, with 76 per cent of all suicides in 2014 being male!
