In Pictures: Laois GAA club raise more than €10,000 in aid of Pieta House

A Laois GAA club has raised more than €10,000 in aid of Pieta House.

On Saturday August 21, Crettyard hosted a 24-hour fundraiser in collaboration with the suicide prevention charity.

Many members of the community came out and walked or ran for the event which kept going throughout the night.

The club was thankful to everyone that participated from near and far with some supporters taking part in the event virtual from the US.

The club would like to thank all of the volunteers that helped to make the event possible and kept it running for the full 24 hours.

The club felt it was important to highlight the importance of people accessing support for their mental health when they need it and to reduce the stigma when asking for help.

Crettyard has so far raised €10,133 and there is still time to contribute to the fundraiser.

You can find the link to do so below and fundraising will end tonight.

Anyone looking for support from Pieta can freephone 1800 247 247 or Text Help to 51444.
