Why we’re doing the inflatable 5k for CALM

Getting people to talk about mental health is a challenge, and it still continues to be a subject that many workplaces find difficult to address. One Connectivity are all about making communication easier and we are proud to support the charity CALM (Campaign Against Living Miserably) which provides helpline services for anyone in need or in a crisis.


The inflatable 5K for CALM


Connecting with people in business or in our day to day lives is so important, and One Connectivity believe we need to prioritise mental health in the workplace and get people talking. This is why we are helping raise awareness of CALM and the vital support they offer, which saves lives and prevents suicide.

To raise money and spread awareness, the One Connectivity team are taking on the challenge of an inflatable 5K fun run, on the 16th of April, to raise money and awareness of this fantastic charity.

CALM statement

Decontee Moore from the CALM Corporate Fundraising office has shared the following statement about their cause:

“CALM exists to save lives by preventing suicide. Tragically, every week in the UK, 125 people take their own lives. We run a free confidential, helpline service for anyone in need or in crisis. CALM’s helpline answers a call every 59 seconds, from people who are struggling with life.

Since 2019, demand for CALM’s helpline services has increased by 94%. We’ve also seen a sharp rise in the number of people calling about money worries from the cost-of-living crisis. We know that financial hardship and the perceived threat of job loss is a key risk factor in suicidal ideation, so sadly our services have never been needed more.”

We are grateful for One Connectivity’s support, which will help us reach more people who could be struggling with their mental health, as well as raising awareness of CALM’s vital life-saving services. Telecommunications has the power to bring people together, and it’s amazing to see them using that power for good.”
