West Tyrone Sinn Féin -- Building an Ireland of Equals

Successful Paintballing Fundraiser for Suicide Prevention

Published: 27 August, 2012

West Tyrone Ógra Shinn Féin raised £510 for PIPS (Public Initiative for the Prevention of Suicide) with a Paintballing and BBQ extravaganza on Saturday past (25th August) in AWOL, County Monaghan.

Proceeds from the fundraiser will aid the awareness and support work delivered by PIPS.

One of the organisers of the event Martin McColgan said,

"Sinn Féin have worked with PIPS to deliver four Suicide Prevention Workshops across Tyrone in the past year. Over 100 people completed the courses, and they now possess the skills to identify signs of someone contemplating suicide, to intervene and prevent them from taking their own life."

"Our fundraiser was a small gesture to PIPS to help them continue with the lifesaving work that they are involved in every single day. If anyone would like to make a donation, please contact 07885569940."
