Wyatt Completes His 1,100 Mile Charity Bike Ride Supporting CALM #RoadtoRockstock
Wyatt has completed his mammoth 1,100 mile journey across the UK - ending at Planet Rockstock Festival in Porthcawl, South Wales. Wyatt's route has taken in 10 major cities across the UK - London, Nottingham, Sheffield, Leeds, Newcastle, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Liverpool, Manchester, Birmingham - before arriving for Day 1 of Rockstock Festival on 2 December 2016.
Why? Because suicide is the biggest killer of men aged under 45 in the UK and The Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM) are trying to change that. Wyatt has already raised £60,000 and you can still donate by clicking on the Just Giving button. By donating to CALM you can make a significant difference.
Suicide is currently the single biggest killer of men under 45 in the UK.
The Campaign Against Living Miserably, CALM, is a registered charity dedicated to preventing male suicide. Last year 4,623 men in the UK took their own life; that’s 12 guys per day. It’s something we need to tackle, and we can make a start by talking about it. CALM aims to change a culture that expects men to be invulnerable, which is an issue that affects all of us.
We believe that if men felt able to ask for and find help when they need it then hundreds of male suicides could be prevented. All of us, at one time or another regardless of gender, will hit a crisis and so we could all do with specialist support when things go wrong.

The worst radio competition winner in history?
This is quite possibly the most underwhelmed competition winner ever ... The prize is a money can’t buy offer of a flight to Paris, piloted by Bruce Dickinson, to hear the new Iron Maiden album at an event hosted by Bruce and including an overnight stay in Paris. A dream prize for any rock fan ... but not this bloke. Listen to the unusual telephone conversation between Wyatt and the competition winner.
