Darkness Into Light Fundraising Event 8th May

Powerdays Joint Managing Director, Liam Kearney has taken over as Chair of the London Darkness into Light charity and is asking for help to raise awareness.

Darkness into Light works with leading UK based charity ICAP to support those who have been impacted by suicide. This charity is extremely relevant today as people as they navigate through the challenges of lockdown and the devastation caused by Covid.

The world has changed rapidly in the last 12 months. Plans have been made, only to be cancelled shortly afterwards. Businesses have adapted, parents have become substitute teachers, and hugs are on hold.

More people than ever before are relying on the lifesaving services that various charities provide free of charge, to those in suicidal distress, those who are self-harming and those who have been bereaved by suicide. But there is hope.

You can help keep these essential services available to those who need them most, especially during these uncertain times. The gift you donate today could mean that one more call can be answered to someone in suicidal distress, one more person can get the help they need, when they need it, and one more family can be spared from the devastating heartbreak of suicide.

Darkness into Light’s annual walk event will take place at sunrise on the morning of 8th May.

This year, as supporters cannot gather together at the usual Darkness Into Light venues, they are bringing DIL to you, and asking all supporters to don their yellow t-shirts and take part in the event at a time and in a location that suits them.

This year you can choose to sign up for a special sunrise event - walk, swim, bike or simply share your sunrise moment - or you can take part in the Darkness Into Light Challenge – when you select this option, they’re waiving the sign-up fee for anyone who pledges to fundraise €150. Get creative with your activity, and remember that no matter how you choose to take part this year, you’ll be giving the gift of hope to those in your community in suicidal crisis, or self-harming.
