Royal Ascent Club

Royal Ascent Club. Twenty RAC Marketing department members based in Bradley Stoke, Bristol, will be undertaking the Three Peaks Challenge in mid-June to raise funds for Suicide Prevention UK. We will begin on the 15th of June at Ben Nevis in Scotland, making our way south after that to climb Scafell Pike and Snowdonia – a total of 26 miles walking and 10,052ft climbing, all within 24 hours. We're lucky to be supported by two drivers within the group. Without them, none of us would be able to partake without them.

Fundraising for SP-UK

We are doing it in support and in aid of SP-UK. An incredible Bristol-based organisation that support locals in mental health crisis both on the phone and with a patrolling outreach team. With the pressure on NHS mental health services ever increasing, the suicide prevention work that SP-UK undertake in our local community is vital, and every penny we raise will go towards assisting individuals who are at risk and ensuring their safety. We’re hoping to raise a minimum of £5,000 between us all. Nearly 800,000 people die by suicide in the world each year, equating to roughly one death by suicide every 40 seconds. SP-UK. Suicide is the most common cause of death for those aged 10-19. But recovery is possible. We hope that in undertaking this challenge, we are able to gain a platform from which to openly discuss the subject of suicide and the mental health crises that lead to people finding themselves in positions of such distress. The numbers continue to be worryingly high and in opening and widening the circle of discussion around this historically 'taboo' subject, we believe we can make a difference amongst our colleagues and the wider community. In the UK, men are three times as likely to die by suicide than women. SP-UK. For every suicide, 25 people make a suicide attempt and many more have serious thoughts of suicide. SP-UK. We thank you graciously for any donations. Every penny you're able to spare will help in the continued patrol outreach and telephone support SP-UK are able to provide.
