Earlier this year, my cousin sadly chose to take his own life. In light of this, my dad, sister, and I ran the Great North 5k on 9th September to raise money for a UK-based charity called Papyrus.
Papyrus is a suicide prevention charity, who specifically target the younger population. Suicide is the main cause of death for young people in the UK – a fact which I find very worrying.
So far we have raised £638 for this fantastic cause! I am very proud of our efforts so far, but there is always room for improvement. Our JustGiving page will still be active for a week or so, so if you would like to donate, please use the button below to get to our page.
