Darkness Into Light in Skibbereen for the 1st time – Saturday 6th May

Darkness into Light – Skibbereen, Saturday 6th May

Darkness Into Light (DIL), Pieta House’s flagship annual fundraising and awareness event, started with approximately 400 people in the now iconic yellow DIL T-shirts walking the 5km course in Dublin’s Phoenix Park in 2009. This year there will be 150 DIL venues across Ireland and worldwide including Skibbereen on 6th May.

As the event will be taking place in Skibb for the first time the Chamber are asking that all businesses decorate their windows yellow the week before from Friday 28th April to raise awareness not only of the cause but the event in Skibbereen so please take time to turn the town yellow!

If you are available to help out with stewarding or with any other aspect of the event please contact Helen Dempsey on 086 8696128 – Thank You.

Last year 130,000 people shared the light and helped to promote suicide prevention and to tackle the stigma that leads people to the doors of Pieta House centres.

See you on May 6th!
