The Braithwaite Gallery's fundraiser for PAPYRUS Prevention of Young Suicide

Fundraising for PAPYRUS Prevention of Young Suicide
raised of £1,000 target
PAPYRUS is our chosen charity for 2023-24
We support young people at risk of suicide to stay safe and find hope in times of need


Each year The Braithwaite Gallery chooses a new charity to support to do our bit to make a difference. Following the amazing response to our 2023 fundraiser in support of PAPYRUS, we have decided to continue supporting them in 2024.

Our last fundraiser for mental health charity Mind raised more than £5000, with the help of our lovely customers and the generosity of artist Sam Toft. Wouldn’t it be amazing to do something similar for PAPYRUS? UPDATE - we have already far exceeded this total - THANK YOU so much to everyone involved.

PAPYRUS has a special significance for us - in 2018 we lost Jake, son of Anne and Mark Braithwaite, the gallery’s owners, to suicide aged just 20. Perhaps by raising money to support this charity, we can give another family another day with their loved one. And another day……

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, in 2018 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, HOPELINEUK.

Every £7 raised can help pay for a life-saving contact to HOPELINEUK. Your donations really are lifesaving, thank you.
