for the cost of a bottle of wine

“People who misuse alcohol are at greater risk of suicide, so it's essential they get the support and services they need to manage this. The risk of suicide is as much as eight times greater when someone is abusing alcohol.”

The Samaritans report that, “alcohol can lower a person’s inhibitions enough for them to act on suicidal thoughts. It can also affect someone’s mood and deepen depression.”

That’s why they, among others, recommend that Governments must take ambitious action on alcohol misuse, and it’s why I’m going alcohol free for the remaining 45 days of the RunningSpace crowdfunding campaign. I’ll be donating to RunningSpace instead. Could you do the same?

We're at £822 and our next target is £1400 by 11.59am on Tuesday evening. Please donate to help us reach our goal and keep on running to beat suicide. Every donation, big or small, is so gratefully received. 

Come and run with us, it might just change your life.
