Hi, everyone 👋
Thank you for reading my latest update. Please forward this email to anyone you think might find it useful.
A cheeky plug: I’m fundraising for Bliss this month by running 100k in May. If you’d be willing to support me and the families who rely on their help, I’d be so very grateful.
Kind regards

Insight: Stalking Awareness Week
Stalking affects 1.5 million people in the UK every year. It can affect anyone, yet no one should suffer this abuse. Stalking can last weeks, months, years - there’s no time limit, and it can happen in the physical and online world.
Tactics can range from adding spyware to your phone to damaging property, tracking where you are, following you and sending unwanted messages. If you think you’re being stalked or know someone who is, help is available. 
My Office commissions a Stalking Advocacy Service and perpetrator programme.
