Law School Staff run Bristol 10K for PAPYRUS Charity

Press release issued: 8 May 2017

On Sunday, staff from the University of Bristol Law School took part in the Bristol 10K to raise funds for Papyrus, the national charity for prevention of suicide in young people.

A huge well done to the 13 members of staff who took part and made a phenominal difference to a charity close to our hearts called PAPYRUS (Prevention of Young Suicide). So far, the Law School has raised £973.69 through our JustGiving fundraiser page, plus £200 in Gift Aid. There is still time to give and help conquer these issues!

Suicide is the biggest killer of young people – male and female – under 35 in the UK. Many students suffer from depression due to stress and anxiety, which can be caused by a numerous amount of worries, whether that be at home, work or university. We, as a Law School, are hoping to put a stop to this by encouraging young people to talk and get the right support that they need and PAPYRUS will achieve this. 

Papyrus, is the national charity for the prevention of young suicide. They deliver awareness and prevention training, provides confidential support and suicide intervention through HOPELineUK, campaign and influence national policy, and empower young people to lead suicide prevention activities in their own communities.
