Launch of suicide awareness walk

By staff reporter

The launch of London Darkness Into Light has taken place at The Crown Moran Hotel in Cricklewood.

Tara Cronin, Chair, said: “London is home to many Irish and suicide is an issue and has touched many families. This walk is helping to raise awareness and bring hope and comfort to many within the community of London.”

Guests at the launch included Dan Mulhall, Ambassador of Ireland to Britain, Joan Freeman CEO Founder of Pieta House and Claire Duffy of Electric Ireland.

All money raised by the 5km walk/run, which will leave from the Crown Hotel at 4.15am on Saturday May 10 and proceed down to Gladstone Park, will go towards Pieta House Self Harm or Suicide Centre. Attendees are asked to register and arrive early on the morning and wrap up well.

Supporting the event which is in association with the Kerry Association London, are The Crown Moran, Icap, IIBN, Danny Maher of Ashford House and Shelagh O’Connor of the New Horizon Youth Centre.
