The cold conditions on Christmas Eve did not deter Sean and Brian Farrell along with many of their family members and friends from collecting for suicide prevention. The fundraiser, now an annual event in honour of Sean and Brian’s brother Stephen, has totalled, over the past two years £6,996.48. Over 20 people took part, and Sean and Brian would like to thank everyone who contributed so generously and to all their family and friends who collected on the day and everyone who supported them. PIPS Newry & Mourne would also like to express their grateful thanks and appreciation to the Farrell family and everyone involved and wish everyone a peaceful and Happy New Year.
