“When I first heard about the idea of the Baton of Hope, I felt compelled to help and knew this was something our company could be part of.

“Throughout the process of design and crafting we have learned much about the scale of the suicide crisis, and the desperate need for a determined and united approach.

“I fervently believe that the Baton of Hope will become a lasting symbol representing what we can achieve if we come together with purpose and recognise there can be a better way.”

Kevin Baker, Founder and CEO of Thomas Lyte

“We have had dozens of messages from people saying how special it felt to carry the Baton and how they felt connected to other people in their position. It has been truly heartwarming.”

“Much has changed since the Tour.  We have been using the period for consolidation, re-building and planning.  At the moment we are focusing on organising our national conference, and getting the Workplace Charter into perfect shape.”
