In September 2019, to mark World Suicide Prevention Day, we made an appeal through BBC Radio 4. Listeners heard the story of Andy Airey, one of our supporters, and a father bereaved by suicide.
Every week BBC Radio 4 has a dedicated charity of the week. We were chosen for the week beginning 8th September and our three minute appeal was broadcast several times throughout the week.
You can listen to our appeal online here.
Andy’s daughter Sophie sadly died by suicide in December 2018. Since Sophie’s death, Andy and his family have worked tirelessly to raise funds and awareness for PAPYRUS.
