About the group
We are a group of graduates from Nottingham Trent University who are challenging ourselves to take on The Yorkshire Three Peaks on 3 April 2020. We are working together to empower people through fundraising for PAPYRUS, a charity focused on preventing suicide in young people.

Fundraising for PAPYRUS
The reason why we have decided to take on this challenge is to raise money for a charity called Papyrus, an organisation who are passionate about preventing suicide in young people.
Suicide is the biggest killer of young people under 35 in the UK and it has affected many people we know personally. We want to raise awareness of this cause and provide support to Papyrus to continue their mission to reduce the stigma around suicide and reduce the number of people who take their lives.
Through donating to this cause, your money can help provide the following support:
- £5 can pay for one text or email conversation from a young person in need to HOPELINEUK.
- £20 enables a young person in distress to speak to a HOPELINEUK advisor and discuss their thoughts of suicide and help them to stay safe.
- £65 can keep their helpline, text and email services running for over one hour
- £165 covers the cost of training someone ASIST (A 2-day course that prepares caregivers to provide suicide first aid interventions)
