Story

This year, USWFC will be raising money for Grassroots. A charity chosen by the family of our third team goalkeeper, Charlotte Swift, who passed away in April 2020. On the 27th of June 2021, a group of us at USWFC will take part in the Brighton Half Marathon, in honour of Charlotte and we hope that you can support us along the way. Any donations are most appreciated.

Here is a bit about the charity:

When someone dies by suicide it means a life has been lost. It means devastation for friends, families, communities. It means one of the worst possible things that can happen, has happened.

And yet today, 400 people in the UK will attempt suicide - one every four minutes. Of those, 18 will die. The good news is there's hope. Together, we can prevent suicide - anyone can be a lifesaver.

Grassroots Suicide Prevention teaches people the skills and confidence they need to spot and support those in crisis. This saves lives.

£20,000 pays for 350+ places on lifesaving suicide prevention training. That's 350+ people ready to help those in crisis. 350+ communities better supported. Thousands of people made safer from suicide.

So I need your help.

Support me as I join the Grassroots Runners. Our miles on the road lead to real lives saved!
