Are you struggling?

DaveThanks for the nomination Tony Smith & Paul Wiggy Earwicker

I chose this picture from last years charity golf day where 2 days before I was told by Stuart Rayner that I would be talking on behalf of the foundation. This was harder than organising 160 people to play the golf during the day.

I can’t wait for this pandemic to be over and get back to normality and also to be able to deliver this talk again and raise awareness and much needed funds for the Lucy Rayner Foundation.

75% of all suicides, that are committed by men, too many already have been taken way too soon!

We can’t keep letting this slip by us, be strong, be there for each other and please never be afraid to speak up or try and reach out to anyone, even myself!
#ChallengeAccepted #24hours
(If I didn't tag you, please don't be offended, I tried to pick people who I thought would take part)

All too often, some men find it easier to
criticize each other or themselves instead of building each other up, with all the negativity going around, lets do something positive!!

Upload 1 picture of yourself... ONLY you.
Then tag 10 or more men to do the same. Build yourself and everyone around you up instead of tearing yourself/ others down COPY AND PASTE

If I tagged you, don't disappoint me, you better do it!! Let's spread some positivity please!

The Lucy Rayner Foundation have been closely monitoring the government advice regarding the coronavirus. Sadly, we’ve decided that it’s in the best interests for the attendees that we are having to postpone the following events – Thank you for your patience and we hope you understand.

🔴Sahara Sand Walk – Postponed 2021
⚫️Let’s walk and talk – Postponed
🔴LRF Annual Golf event – It is our priority to look after everyone’s health, Reigate Hill have kindly offered us Sunday 4th October 2020 – we have provisionally agreed this as our new date. Dave Shaw will shortly email everyone regarding this.

Our charity and our services are solely run by the money we raise from our events, fingers crossed we can announce new dates as soon as possible. Our highest priority is to ensure safety and the wellbeing and not help spread the infection.

We have also taken measures to provide online counselling and not face to face sessions. As a charity we are aware that these uncertain times may cause fear and anxiety. So our counsellors will be offering slots to those who are struggling with their mental health, we just ask that you consider our counsellors when reaching out, who are giving their time and energy in supporting you.
Please note that each referral will be screened for signposting if we are unable to help at this time.

Thank you to all our counsellors for their continued support ❤️


Please stay safe, be kind and look out for each other.

Love LRF Team ❤️

What a lovely message. I have ❤ it but I also want to cry 😭. Such sad times but we will get through it. Everyone please keep safe and look after the vulnerable in your families and community. 💋

In these uncertain times, you may have decided to self-isolate, cancelled social gatherings, not seeing your friends and family as much as you would like. With these current changes it may have an impact on your own mental health. It is really important we look after our families and our own wellbeing.

Make sure you create a safe space, practising mindfulness, try to stick to a similar daily routine and make sure you regularly check in on your loved ones - FaceTime is great, if you can. 📱Discussing any fears, anxiety you may have through these uncertain times with someone you trust is really important ❤️

📢 With the current situation and the new updates, we have called an urgent meeting regarding our future events. An announcement will be made on Monday. 📢

We all have a part to play and anyone trained as a Mental Health First Aider it’s now time to put your skills in practice - Supporting others who are struggling with the uncertainty and panic- Start a conversation.


Few tips to help:

✅Set the day off with early morning music/podcast
✅Create a routine, meal plan for the evening
✅Cleaning – Helps clear the mind
✅Keep moving
✅Invite a colleague/friend to join you for a virtual coffee break and catch up.
✅Happy hour – prioritise self-care.
✅Limit Your Time on Social Media/Reading the news
✅Eat and sleep Well

ABOUT US

On the 5th May 2012, Jenny Rayner and her family were tragically faced with the impact of mental illness, when their daughter Lucy took her own life aged just 22.

This life-changing event inspired the family to begin campaigning to help address the mental health challenges faced by young adults.

LUCY’S STORY

Lucy Marie Rayner was a beautiful, sensitive soul, a daughter, a sister, a girlfriend, a grand-daughter, a cousin, an auntie, a best friend, a helper, a hard worker, a diva, a perfectionist, a wild child, a risk taker, a party animal, the list goes on… took her own life in 2012, aged 22.

No one saw it coming, it was a total surprise to everyone.
