Today Adrienne, our Clinical Operations Manager, received an award on Caroline’s behalf. The award is from the High Sheriff of Nottinghamshire and is for her commitment to services for others.
Adrienne said “It is an absolute pleasure to represent our CEO Caroline Harroe today, collecting her award from The High Sheriff of Nottinghamshire in recognition of great and valuable services to the community. Well done Caroline Harroe and the team for your compassion, dedication and contribution in enhancing the life of the community.”
Caroline says “I’m really proud to be given such recognition but everything I achieve, I achieve because I am supported by a phenomenal team that do life saving work.”
“The team at Harmless work tirelessly throughout the whole year and what we do is hard but really privileged work. We hear the painful stories of people’s struggle and their losses. We also get to hear the successes, the recoveries and hear of the comfort that we bring to people in pain.”
“We are a non profit organisation and rely on the support of the community to keep our life saving services afloat. We couldn’t do it without you.”
Recently we have been supported by Zoe Ball and the Sport Relief Campaign Team.
As I’m sure you’re aware, Zoe lost her partner to suicide last May. As such she has decided to undertake a sport relief challenge to raise money for comic relief but also to raise awareness about the issues she and her partner, faced.
We were privileged enough to spend some time with Zoe over the course of the filming and get to know her story. Billy had long suffered from depression and died in May as a result of his struggle.
Zoe will spend the next five days cycling Blackpool to Brighton on her #HardestRoadHome cycle and will be on BBC breakfast each morning to raise awareness of the cycle and to get people talking about mental health.
There will also be a documentary on the evening of March the 21st that will feature our work with The Tomorrow Project and then again throughout the campaign evening of the 23rd of March.
Please show your support for the challenge, for all that Zoe stands for and is fighting for and facing herself, and please tune in to the documentary.
We’ve worked so hard to bring the suicide prevention and bereavement agenda to light in this piece of work and we hope that this is a good opportunity to galvanise the support and momentum needed to keep our wonderful services in the position they need to be – saving lives.
