Walk of Hope 2022
On Saturday 7th May 2022, our people walked 5km at 4am for mental health and suicide intervention charity, Chris’s House.
“Chris’s House was founded by Anne Rowan, a Wishaw mum with a passionate vision for a crisis centre established in memory of her son Chris, whom she lost to suicide in 2011 at the age of 36.
Chris’s House stands for ‘Centre of Help, Response and Intervention Surrounding Suicide’ and has been set up to offer a safe environment where people in, or approaching, suicidal crisis can have a safe place to go and get professional support. This will help them begin to recover from their current mental ill health.”
In October of 2021, we lost a colleague and honoured them by raising over £500 for Chris’s House via the Walk of Hope. The WoH takes place annually, and has its’ participants walk 5km starting in the darkness, and walking into the sunlight.
Thanks to all those who donated. We will continue to support our people and promote the use of mental health charities such as this one, and you can check out some of the pictures we took below.
