SOS Silence of Suicide are delighted that World Senior’s Snooker are highlighting the importance of suicide awareness by raising funds for us through its #firstpoke challenge.
Their aim is to raise £14,700 just as they did recently for the NHS, as the snooker family showed their gratitude to all workers who sacrificed so much to keep us safe.
Now it’s our turn and this means so much not just to us, but to all our service users.
The aim is simple – to raise £14,700 to help establish and run a helpline for anyone, anywhere, who needs support with their poor emotional health, or has feelings of suicide.
SOS is available for online chat which is free, confidential and one to one, 7 days a week between 1pm and 6pm, so please, don’t suffer in silence, let us help you through your darker times with continuing support.
To donate, simply go to https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/firstpoke
For anyone unfamiliar with snooker, the amount being raised represents the highest break in snooker – 147 – can anyone do this on the #firstpoke challenge?
You can watch the players each weekday via World Senior’s Snooker Facebook page.
We would like to say a huge thank you to World Senior’s Snooker, WPBSA, Jason Francis, Jason Ferguson, all the players taking part and mostly YOU for helping us to help others.
