A LOCAL school will this weekend play host to over one thousand cyclists as they roll into town as part of mental health campaign, ‘Cycle Against Suicide’.

They hope to promote the message that ‘It’s okay to not be okay and that you can ask for help.’

Mercy Mounthawk Secondary School is urging members of the public to come down to the school on Sunday, May 3 at 5pm to welcome into town the weary cyclists on their journey around the country.

The school will be welcoming them in that evening and will also be there to see them off again the next morning at 8.30am when once again, it is urged that as many people as possible come down to see them off.

There will be a sea of orange awaiting them on both occasions  to greet them on the evening, where there will be very interesting talks, special guests, excellent entertainment and delicious refreshments also on hand.

The school has been working very hard over the last while in preparation for the cycle and most importantly, promoting the message of the cycle to the whole school population through a wide range of lead up activities.

The main objective of the Cycle is to raise awareness of the considerable help and supports that are available for anyone battling depression, self harm, at risk of suicide or those bereaved by suicide. It will continue until May 10.

All information on the cycle can be found on its website here.
