THE Darkness into Light London committee members were joined by Brian Higgins, CEO of Pieta House, and representatives of the Clayton Crown hotel last Wednesday to present a cheque to ICAP, the Immigrant Counselling and Psychotherapy charity.

Thanks to the generosity of the London Irish community, £3,500 was donated to the mental health charity. 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 walk took place last year on May 7, 2016 with an estimated 900 participants taking part in the charity event.

The next Darkness into Light walk will take place in London  Saturday morning, May 6. 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. This year will see members of the popular Irish band; the Monday Club, JP O’Donnell and Liam Gill lead the walk with members of the committee.
