Each year, Ellie Reubens holds a three-mile sponsored walk called Do it for Depression at Beckenham Place Park.

This will be the fourth year of the walk, proceeds of which will go towards mental health charity Maytree.

“All are welcome, it’s a great afternoon and you feel a great sense of togetherness and community spirit,” said Ellie.

“The walk was originally called Do it for Danielle, in honour of my friend Danielle, but since her passing there have been more suicides of people I know of so we changed the DifD’s walk name to depression.

“We are raising money for the Maytree sanctuary for the suicidal - this is an incredibly worthwhile, important and one-of-a-kind charity - currently the only one like it in our country.”

The charity bridges the gap between the medical sector and the voluntary helplines, essentially providing a safe place for those who are suicidal to turn to for support.

Ellie added: “Hopefully there will be many more of these much-needed facilities in the future, but for now we want to rally around this one and show why they are os important and worth investing in.”

The walk will start at the manor house at Beckenham Place Park at 12noon on Saturday September 1.
