Support Nigel

A member of our team Nigel Lawrence will be running The London Marathon in April 2017 for CALM (Campaign Against Living Miserably) to raise awareness of male suicide. Many of you will already know Nigel well from The Three Tuns Lower Halstow.

CALM is a national charity dedicated to preventing male suicide in the UK. Suicide is the single biggest cause of death of men aged 20 - 45 here. In 2014, 76% of suicides were male. The charity was launched in 2006.

CALM provides a free, anonymous and confidential helpline and webchat service, open every day from 5pm to midnight which gives any man the chance to offload and talk through problems.

CALM campaigns and challenges a culture that insists that a man who seeks support is somehow less of a man. Being silent isn’t being strong and we need to push for change to improve suicide prevention policies and practices.

Please see their website: www.thecalmzone.net for more information on The CALMzone, with men talking about issues they face and a place where men can find out more about how to overcome some of these problems, along with articles and videos.

  • It can cost £7 to receive just one Freephone call that can save a life.
  • £23 pays for someone to take calls for an hour.
  • £160 keeps a line open from 5pm to midnight for one evening a year.

Nigel has a JustGiving page (link below) you can visit to sponsor him and help him on his way towards a target of £2000 for this very worthy cause.
