On 10th September Associate Director Nick Fitzpatrick helped kick off a day of activities to promote awareness for World Suicide Prevention Day by walking from the Darkness and into the Light in a Walk of Hope from Widnes Vikings stadium to Warrington Wolves stadium.
94 men in the UK die each week by suicide, with an average 14 of those in Nick’s hometown of Warrington. Together with 120 people and starting out at 2:30am, they completed an 8 mile walk between the two towns as the sun came up.
Nick was back into work in the afternoon after a few hour’s much needed sleep.
Thanks to all those involved and to all who organised the event, very proud of everyone.
