Rural community near Carrick-on-Suir presents sponsored walk proceeds to suicide prevention charity

The €2250 proceeds of a sponsored walk/run in Rathgormack have been handed over to the Suicide or Survive charity. 

The event in aid of mental health awareness took place in the village in June and    was well supported by the people of Rathgormack/Clonea and surrounding areas. 

 Suicide or Survive will spend the funds on promoting mental health awareness programmes and workshops.

 The walk/run organisers thank all the participants, sponsors and everyone who helped run the event.  Picured above at the presentation of the cheque  are from  left:  John Lark and Martina Walsh of Rathgormack, Robert Carley of Suicide or Survive and Cllr Liam Brazil.
