Mark Hamilton’s walk raises thousands of dollars for suicide charity CALM

The walk, held in memory of former ATG, Nissan, Audi and Mercedes-Benz CEO Mark Hamilton, raised more than £2,000 for the charity CALM (Campaign Against Living Miserably).

Friends and former colleagues of Hamilton, who worked in the British car retail industry for three decades, gathered in Windsor for the march at the end of June. Thanks to generous donations, £2,110 has been raised so far, which will support CALM’s work to support people in crisis and combat suicide.

Joanna Ahmet, his friend and former Audi colleague, said: “What a day of walking, reminiscing and remembering our beloved friend Marek.”

“It is so important to remove the stigma around discussing mental health issues, please talk and check in on your loved ones and work colleagues as you never know what people are dealing with.”

The march took place on what would have been Hamilton’s 58th birthday.

Donations can still be made to the JustGiving page here.

In January, friends and family raised the alarm after Hamilton went missing in Windsor, leading to several public appeals from police trying to find him.

Unfortunately, his body was found by police approximately two weeks later.

During his more than three-decade career in the automotive industry, Hamilton has held senior management positions at Citroen, Peugeot, Nissan, Audi, Mercedes-Benz, Autovia and ATG (Automotive Transformation Group).
