This morning we joined our friends Mike and Alison Standing, together with Deborah Hockney (Alison’s sister) and her family on A Walk for Adam.
The walk aims to raise awareness of the high level of suicide that occurs in our society, especially amongst younger men, which seems to get hidden from view from the general public.
The 40-mile walk started from Chandler’s Ford Methodist Church this morning, and will spread over 4 days. Today we completed our first day’s walk and arrived at Winchester Cathedral. Friends and families will continue the rest of the journey over the next 3 days.
We all enjoyed the beautiful scenery and nature, and had great conversations on our walk. Talking and sharing was what made the walk so meaningful to all of us.
Here are some photos from today’s walk:
The aim of A Walk for Adam is to celebrate Adam’s life on the eve of what would have been his 40th birthday, and raise money for the following charities:
1) Mind, which supports people with mental health issues.
2) Perennial, a gardening charity for horticultural workers, who have supported Adam’s three young sons.
3) Earthtime for All, a charity in North Scotland that Deborah co-founded and works to promote outdoor, environmental activities for young families, to encourage stronger family bonds and physical and mental well-being.
