Suicide prevention charity wins £1,000 donation


A WARRINGTON-based charity dedicated to suicide prevention is celebrating after receiving a £1,000 donation.
Papyrus (Prevention of Young Suicide) says the donation from the Amazon fulfilment centre in the town, will help the charity reach out to more people across the UK, supporting young people at risk of suicide, extending their community work and suicide prevention training.
The charity aims to reduce the number of young people who take their own lives by breaking down the stigma around suicide and equipping young people with the skills to recognise and respond to suicidal behaviour.
HOPELINEUK is the charity’s confidential helpline that provides practical advice and support to young people with thoughts of suicide and anyone concerned about a young person who may have thoughts of suicide. It is staffed by trained professionals and offers a telephone, text and email service.
Site Leader at Amazon in Warrington, Prashant Pandey, said:“Papyrus plays such a vital role in our community and ensures young people receive the support and care they need. We are delighted to be supporting the charity and we hope that this donation helps Papyrus to continue its excellent work in our local community.
Liam Durkan, the charity’s fundraising officer, said: “Suicide is the biggest killer of young people in the UK. Our vision is for a society which speaks openly about suicide and has the resources to help young people who may have suicidal thoughts. Support like this enables us to continue undertaking such necessary work locally. Thank you to the Amazon team for their generosity.”
