Caroline Flack’s family and friends to climb mountains to raise funds for suicide charity


CELEB friends and family of TV star Caroline Flack will be climbing mountains to help prevent suicides.

Organiser Bradley Simmonds, her personal trainer, said some “really good names” would join the two-day Climb for Caroline, who killed herself, aged 40, in February.

He added: “I wanted to do a challenge and I wanted to get her closest friends and family on board.”

Celebs involved have not been named but they will walk for 12 hours each day across some of the highest mountains in Cumbria’s Lake District.

They will raise cash for Samaritans, which helps people in emotional crisis.

They will be climbing with Charity Challenge and WOW Hydrate to raise awareness and increase support of the charity.

Bradley explained: "We've got some really good names and really good friends of Caroline.

"We've got some of her close family.

"We're all really excited to be raising money in Caroline's name."


EVERY 90 minutes in the UK a life is lost to suicide.

It doesn't discriminate, touching the lives of people in every corner of society - from the homeless and unemployed to builders and doctors, reality stars and footballers.

It's the biggest killer of people under the age of 35, more deadly than cancer and car crashes.

And men are three times more likely to take their own life than women.

Yet it's rarely spoken of, a taboo that threatens to continue its deadly rampage unless we all stop and take notice, now.

That is why The Sun launched the You're Not Alone campaign.

The aim is that by sharing practical advice, raising awareness and breaking down the barriers people face when talking about their mental health, we can all do our bit to help save lives.

Let's all vow to ask for help when we need it, and listen out for others... You're Not Alone.

If you, or anyone you know, needs help dealing with mental health problems, the following organisations provide support:
