The Rotary Club of Lurgan has raised £4,000 to support local charity PIPS Upper Bann.
The club decided that this year their special project should be to help fund the PIPS’ counselling programme.
“This service is provided by Counselling and Consultancy Services, a local agency, run by Jackie McCrum a credited psychotherapist,” said Peter Ryan, of The Rotary Club.
“It is a vital service that PIPS provides giving expert counselling to people who are at risk of suicide or selfharm and people bereaved by a relative or close friend who has died through suicide,” he added.
“For this we have managed to raise by ourselves and with a grant from Rotary District 1160 (our district representing all of Ireland) £4,000,” said Mr Ryan.
