Pictured at the launch of ‘Darkness Into Light are Abigail Glasgow, Roger Glasgow, Mandy Forgrave, Colleen McSorley and Cllr Stephanie Quigley.
Councillor Stephanie Quigley is delighted to announce that the annual ‘Darkness into Light’ Walk will be coming to the Causeway Coast for the first time this year on Saturday, May 11.
Each year, thousands of people across Ireland and internationally take part in a pre-dawn walk to raise awareness of suicide and support services available to people affected by it.
Walkers and runners gather just before dawn and walk through the dark before taking in the sunrise.
“The mission of Darkness Into Light is to raise funds for the suicide and self harm charity Pieta House and they have partnered with the Samaritans here in Coleraine to bring much needed funds into our local area,” said Stephanie.
“This campaign will raise vital funds for suicide prevention, suicide bereavement and self-harm.”
