On Saturday 11th May, Lorraine Burns & Kathy from our Hamilton Branch took part in the Walk of Hope 2019.
The Walk of Hope is a charity event hosted by our Hamilton Branch Charity of the Year – Chris’s House. Those who participate walk from 4am to sunrise taking time to remember loved ones who they have lost through suicide or show support to those affected.
The girls and their families took part in order to raise money for this amazing charity. Between them both they raised an incredible £514.
About Chris’s House
Chris’s House was founded by Anne Rowan, a Wishaw mum with a passionate vision for a crisis centre established in memory of her son Chris, whom she lost to suicide in 2011 at the age of 36.
She turned her attention to taking action – through the creation of Chris’s House, a ‘Centre for Help, Response and Intervention Surrounding Suicide’. It is the first 24 hour, non-medical crisis centre in Scotland offering integrated support.
