Jayda Tural, Call Co-Ordinator here at Managed 24/7 has completed a very challenging charity trek up Mount Snowdon with family to raise money for The Samaritans.
Over the weekend of the 15th and 16th June, Jayda and her family took to the slippery, wet and very windy conditions up Mount Snowdon. Snowdon is the highest mountain in Wales, at an elevation of 1,085 metres above sea level, and the highest point in the British Isles outside the Scottish Highlands.
With her family by her side, Jayda completed the trek with her loved ones to raise a fantastic amount of money for The Samaritans.
The Samaritans, provide emotional support to anyone in emotional distress, struggling to cope, or at risk of suicide throughout the United Kingdom and Ireland.
Samaritans' vision is that fewer people die by suicide.
Every 90 minutes, someone in the UK or Ireland dies by suicide.
Every six seconds, somebody contacts Samaritans for help.
They are open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and are there to respond to calls for help.
Jayda said: "It has been an amazing experience to be able to raise nearly £500 so far for the Samaritans. Through the rain, wind, blood, sweat and tears we overcame a mountain and the achievement that comes along with it is priceless. This challenge has also taught me that life is like a mountain, there will be ups and there will be downs, rocky paths and smooth ones but you feel amazing when you look back on what you have overcome'.
Please continue to support Jayda and her family in raising donations towards The Samaritans through the link here. With mental health on the rise, they are a crucial charity to everyone who will never know when they need them. Any donation, however big or small, will be greatly appreciated.
