Raising money for Samaritans and IASP


An epic global team effort to run / walk / cycle (or practically any other chosen self propelled method!) the distance between our international offices by 28 March 2021. We've had so much fun doing it AND finished 2 WEEKS early on 15th March. So we're heading all the way back to Glasgow, another 26770km, but this time in just 5 months!! Symbolising our solidarity as an international team, staying healthy, and raising valuable funds for life saving and enriching international care charities;

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. https://www.samaritans.org/

The International Association for Suicide Prevention (IASP) is dedicated to preventing suicide and suicidal behaviour globally, alleviating its effects, and providing a forum for academics, mental health professionals, crisis workers, volunteers and suicide survivors. https://www.iasp.info/

Your donation to these Appeals will help reach those who are struggling to cope. It will help recruit more volunteers and work faster on different ways to be there.

Change the life of someone who desperately needs it.
