Warrington Mayor joins PAPYRUS HOPEWalk

9th October 2017

Celebrating World Mental Health Day, on Tuesday 10th October, Warrington Mayor Les Morgan and his wife Gwyn are joining the team and supporters of Warrington-based national charity, PAPYRUS Prevention of Young Suicide, on its annual HOPEWalk. Everyone of all ages, with or without dogs, is welcome to join.

In the UK suicide is the main cause of death of all young people under 35. PAPYRUS is calling on the nation to join its annual HOPEWalk to smash stigma and raise awareness that there is hope and help for young people who are struggling.

The Warrington walkers will meet at The Golden Gates at Warrington Town Hall at 5pm, setting off for a walk around the city for up to two hours, returning to the charity’s office in Milner Street. PAPYRUS hopes that many will join, for all or part of the way, to help raise awareness and demonstrate the importance of being open and encouraging positive discussion about young mental health.

This is the sixth year of PAPYRUS HOPEWalk, which has grown every year, to around 30 individual walks, through towns, country parks, along coastlines, up hills and down dales across the UK this coming week – all organised by supporters and fundraisers.

Please join in to make Warrington HOPEWalk one to remember. There is no need to register. Balloons and bunting will be provided and if you wish to look proud in purple, you may purchase a t-shirt on the night.

For more information about the HOPEWalk call 01925 572 444 or visit https://www.papyrus-uk.org/get-involved/fundraise-for-papyrus/papyrus-hopewalk-2017

Suicide is the biggest killer of young people - male and female - under 35 in the UK. Many thousands more attempt or contemplate suicide, harm themselves or suffer alone, afraid to speak openly about how they are feeling.

We are the national charity for the prevention of young suicide. We draw from the experience of many who have been touched personally by young suicide across the UK and speak on their behalf in our campaigns and in our work. We need more people who share our aims to join us to strengthen our voice - together we can save young lives.
