Kerry London cheque

At the cheque presentation were Tara Cronin (DIL London), Danny Sullivan (Kerry Assoc Chairman), Joan Freeman (CEO Pieta House), Kieran O’Neill (ESB PRO), Catherine Hennessy (CEO Icap), Tommy Moran (Moran Hotels) & Sinéad O’Sullivan (DIL London PRO).

THE Kerry Association London ‘Darkness Into Light’ committee members were joined by CEO of Pieta House Joan Freeman, to present a cheque to  the Immigrant Counselling and Psychotherapy, ICAP, charity on Wednesday.

The presentation took place in the Crown Moran Hotel in Cricklewood which hosted the walk back on May 10, when an estimated 500 participants took part in the charity event.

The Darkness Into Light walk was brought to London thanks to the support and coordination of the Kerry Association London and its dedicated members.

The next Darkness Into Light walk will take place in London on Saturday morning May 9. It is a unique, early morning experience which begins in darkness at 4.15am as thousands of people walk or run a 5km route while dawn is breaking. The early dawn represents hope and is symbolic of the work of Pieta House; bringing people from darkness back into the light.

Joan Freeman, CEO of Pieta House, said: “We are delighted to give half of the proceeds to ICAP.  Thank you to the Kerry Association London for their continued support. We also looked to the future and hope to open and operate Pieta rooms here in London in the next 6-8 months.”

Darkness into Light is the most vital component of Pieta House’s fundraising calendar. As demand for the service continues to grow and with more than 80% of Pieta House’s income depending on public donations, funds raised during Darkness into Light are essential for Pieta House to continue to provide a free service for the increasing numbers seeking help.
