A big thank you to the Province of Nottinghamshire Freemasons COVID support fund!

Last week, the Province of Nottinghamshire Freemasons awarded Harmless £1,000 from the Covid-19 relief funds.  This money supports us to continue our vital work supporting those at risk of self-harm, suicide crisis and those affected by suicide bereavement.

Trevor Harris met with Katie, our suicide crisis service manager, to hand over the cheque… socially distanced of course!

Could you help us to better support our clients?

If you have been bereaved by suicide, could you please complete this brief survey?

In this survey we are trying to understand how Covid-19 has impacted those bereaved by suicide. 

It is so important that we understand the implication on different groups of people during this difficult time if we are to ensure that services remain responsive to need.

300 miles cycled to raise money for self harm and suicide prevention projects

Deborah has cycled 300 miles from London to Paris to raise money for Harmless and the Tomorrow Project. She let us know how it was going on her travels:

Day One:  100 miles from London to Calais, got 2 bed at 11pm- shattered. Up again at 6.30 for Day 2: 71 miles from Calais to Abbeville. Described as ‘undulating’ – your not kidding! But lots of fast fun descents to match the uphill slogs & a lovely lunch stop by a lake. Gorgeous weather, beautiful scenery- didn’t want to stop at the end. Only another 130 miles to go to Paris!

Day Two: Today should have been a ride in the park, easy 55 miles into Paris right? Wrong! Strong winds & torrential rain for 50 miles brought us close to hypothermia. 5 punctures in 20 miles, too cold to stop for food & a knackered knee tested my reserve to the limit. Sheer stubbornness got me through it. At the holding point, the rain stopped. 158 of us were escorted onto the champs Elysee bringing Paris to a stand still. The morning misery vanished instantly. This ones for you Harmless, thanks Caroline Harroe for saving my life & getting me here!

Well done Deborah, we’re all proud of you!
