Richmond businesses are being asked to support an overnight walk taking place to raise awareness for mental health issues.

Mental health charity Counselling, Life Advice and Suicide Prevention (Clasp) runs Walking out of Darkness, a 25-mile overnight walk into central London, on Saturday, July 19.

Clasp is already working with Richmond Council to organise the event, which will start and finish at Old Deer Park.

However Clasp is looking for businesses in Richmond to help in any way possible, from fundraising to putting up posters.

Money raised from the event will go towards the new Clasp helpline, live from September this year, to provide advice for those suffering from mental health issues.

More details about Clasp and the event can be found at
