We support young people at risk of suicide to stay safe and find hope in times of need

Story

ASC swimmer Lucy dreamt of swimming the channel. So as part of her legacy we are holding a swim event where all ASC swimmers are challenged to swim the distance of the English channel in groups, in order to raise money for PAPYRUS. This is a great cause and challenge for the swimmers, 100% of the donations to this page will go directly to PAPYRUS.

PAPYRUS is the national Charity for the Prevention of Young Suicide.

Suicide is the biggest killer of young people under the age of 35 in the UK, every year over 1800 young people took their own lives. PAPYRUS provides confidential support and advice to young people struggling with thoughts of suicide, and anyone worried about a young person through their helpline, HOPELINE247.

Every £5 raised can contribute towards a life-saving contact to HOPELINE247. Your donations really are lifesaving, thank you.
