HOPEWALK is PAPYRUS’s flagship fundraising event which takes place each October across the UK. This year, PAPYRUS is celebrating it’s ten year HOPEWALK anniversary – we launched HOPEWALK around World Mental Health Awareness Day on October 10th 2013. Originally, we asked supporters to organise walks during this week in October, but over the years it has evolved and now takes place over the whole month of October.
Everyone’s HOPEWALK will be different with one common goal; to smash the stigma and get the conversation around suicide started. It’s an opportunity to gather friends and family together – or take on a solo walk – to raise awareness and funds for PAPYRUS and suicide prevention, or to walk for someone you’ve lost.
The High Compton HOPEWALK will start on the 14th October, from North Star Inn, High Crompton Shaw (38 Rushcroft Road, Shaw, Oldham, OL2 7PR) . If you have any questions about this form please email email@example.com.
This walk has been organised by our kind supporters Sarah and Peter in memory of Ben Fitchett. By completing this form, you are consenting to us sharing your information with the event organiser.
Their walks will take place on Saturday 14th October.
