Take on the challenge to walk 70 miles in March, whilst raising vital funds and awareness for Samaritans!


I am raising money for Samaritans because they offer a valuable service and suicide can affect anyone, including my football club, Yeovil Town. In March 2021, Yeovil captain Lee Collins took his own life while still a player. Since then, we have also lost former players Sam Winston (44) and Neil Le Bihan (47). Suicide is the leading cause of death in men under 50 and we need to do more to tackle the reasons for this. In my view every suicide can be prevented, and having someone to talk to is the first step, which is why I am raising money for Samaritans. 

The Samaritans' target for this challenge is 70 miles, but I'll be aiming for 140, and hopefully more. 140 miles is the distance between where I live in Devon, and Huish Park in Yeovil (and back!). I will aim to post daily updates on Facebook and Instagram. 


Every ten seconds, Samaritans answer a call for help. We’re here, day or night, for anyone who’s struggling to cope, who needs someone to listen without judgement or pressure. Samaritans is not only for the moment of crisis, we’re taking action to prevent the crisis. We give people ways to cope and the skills to be there for others.Every life lost to suicide is a tragedy, and Samaritans’ vision is that fewer people die by suicide. That’s why we work tirelessly to reach more people and make suicide prevention a priority.

Samaritans can be contacted at 116 123, it's a free call available 24 hours a day.
