CHARITY OF THE YEAR: Sunflowers Suicide Support is and chosen charity for 2024

In 2024, the Charity of the Year for and, is Sunflowers Suicide Support, a Gloucestershire charity that provides support for people bereaved or affected by suicide.

We will be organising a series of fun and challenging events throughout the year to support and raise funds for Sunflowers.

The first event is #SwimForSunflowers - A Group Swim in the Pool the Distance of The Channel and Back for Sunflowers Suicide Support Charity.

A group of regular swimmers at the Cheltenham Ladies' College pool have a 2-hour slot on Sunday 17th March 2024, to see if we can collectively swim the distance of The English Channel to France and back in the pool. It is a total distance of 67.6km = 2,704 lengths! We think we can do it!!

Everything you donate will be doubled through the generous support of Pete and Lucy Eggleston through a match funding agreement with their Eggleston Charitable Foundation. So please give generously...

Other events will include:

#QuizForSunflowers - Wednesday 17th April 2024 at Cheltenham Bowling Club, Suffolk Square

#RaffleForSunflowers - Let us know on if you would like to donate a prize in exchange for lots of publicity on

#TrekForSunflowers - GlosJobs and director, Belinda Wilson (above), will be spending several days trekking and camping in the jungle in Cambodia, finishing in the ancient temples of Angkor Wat, to raise funds for Sunflowers.

If you have any other thoughts, ideas or suggestions as to how we can spread the word and help the charity, please do contact Belinda on
