The Big Walk is on! starts 10th April 2018
Two regulars at SoBS Aylesbury , Gill Boiling and Gemma James, supported en route by others from Aylesbury, will walk from Aylesbury to Brighton next April, under the banner of STRIDE AGAINST SUICIDE, to raise funds for SOBS and Hector’s House. The latter is the charity that Robert and Belinda Stringer founded six years ago after the death of their son, Hector. They started their own charity because, at that time, they did not find SOBS or any other support. They are very active in preventing suicide in young people in this area through work in schools, and direct intervention when they hear that someone is struggling. Robert is also now a regular at our meetings and plays a great role in supporting those who are newly bereaved. The walk is Gill’s wish to commemorate the tenth anniversary of the death together of her parents by suicide; Brighton is a suitable destination as Gemma’s family, including her late brother, are from that area.
