I recently participated in the London Marathon.
After losing a colleague to suicide in the last year I decided that I wanted to do support a charity that was close to his family’s hearts. When I spoke to his wife, she explained that HOPE was supporting their family since Nick’s tragic loss. When they informed me of the incredible support that HOPE has provided them, I decided that I would like to raise some funds for HOPE from running the London Marathon.
Being able to support such an inspiring charity that provide families with as much support as they need after being bereaved by suicide meant so much. When running I had lots of people speak to me about the charity and we’re all amazed at what a special supportive service they provide.
I really hope that the money that I have raised will go towards supporting those who need support in some of the most challenging times.
