The Background 

In lockdown part deux, I thought I would use the time for a Movember circuit break for a cause close to my heart and for too many of my friends and connections. I have been drinking too much, which has not helped my own mental or physical health, so I’m taking a month’s break. I`m going to run  at least 100 miles in November and try to run  my first sub 2hr half marathon, oh and I’m growing my first MO to raise awareness of men’s health and specifically men’s suicide. When I explained to my kids what I was doing, my 12 year old son said “dad did you know that suicide is the biggest killer of young men in the UK” so sad and true. I have been lucky to meet hundreds of amazing people throughout my life and career, but I have also lost 3 wonderful young friends, including one of my most talented colleagues to suicide. In this toughest of years and beyond, be kind, support each other and know that one of the bravest things you can do is seek help or talk about your feelings and health (call Samaritans free phone "116 123") PS they all enjoyed a giggle so watch this space for a few fancy dress runs.

Why Samaritans

Coronavirus is impacting all of our lives. This crisis is the biggest challenge Samaritans has ever faced. Before Coronavirus hit, 20,000 Samaritans volunteers were answering a call for help every six seconds.This could be someone you know, family or friends in urgent need but unable to talk to anyone in the middle of the night. It is more important than ever for Samaritans to be there 24/7, 365 days a year for those who need us. Samaritans' helpline is feeling the pressure. They're likely to experience more people struggling to cope or in crisis and they may have less volunteers to help answer calls for help. Their teams are working hard to ensure that we can still be here 24/7, 365 days a year for those who are in crisis. Your donation to Samaritans Emergency Appeal will help them reach those who are struggling to cope. It will help Samaritans recruit more volunteers and work faster on different ways to be there. Change the life of someone who desperately needs them.
