The Maytree Respite Centre
Maytree's aim is to save lives and relieve suffering by providing a one-off four night stay to people in a suicidal crisis. We offer guests a supportive, non-medical environment where they can rest, reflect, and be befriended confidentially and without judgement.
Only 0 days to go!

Welcome to Sarah and Josie's fundraising page!

We'e running this race with our friends Chris and Jane. Josie and Sarah are running for the Maytree, a suicide respite centre. Chris and Jane are running for the Homerton Hope charity.

We're doing this because Sarah's 16 year old daughter Rachel took her own life earlier this year. You can read Rachel's story here. We are both remembering her and supporting causes she'd approve of. Rachel was a keen member of Heathside running club. She made many visits to the Homerton, our local hospital and was very aware of the lack of resources the NHS face. The Maytree is local to us too.

Please support us - and thank you to everyone who has so generously done so already. You can support Chris and Jane's run here

P.S. About the logo: The R is for Rachel, of course. The star is mostly Bowie's - but red. The semicolon is for suicide prevention. Special thanks to Rachel's friend Frankie for the idea.
