The Foundation works to prevent suicide, support those who have lost loved ones and provide training to improve emotional and mental health.
They offer a range of services to help people who have been affected by suicide, as well as working with young people in schools and sports clubs to promote positive emotional and mental health.
Our fundraising efforts will be in memory of two Durham Golfers, David Ferries and Will Alexander, who tragically lost their lives to suicide in the early months of 2021.
