Athy Darkness into Light handed a cheque over to Pieta House yesterday evening.
The committee had the pleasure of handing over €33,880 to John Breslin of Pieta House from their successful Darkness into Light event earlier this year.
This is a significant increase on last year.
The committee would like to thank all who participated and supported the walk.
To provide a comprehensive counselling service to an individual costs around €1000, so through peoples efforts some 34 people have been supported in their vital struggle.
Each persons mental health battle affects approximately 70 family and friends so the figure raised is huge.
