PETER Mark salons in Tralee and Killarney will hold fundraising initiatives as part of the annual Petermarkathon this month.

The event which takes place in Peter Mark salons each year across the October Bank Holiday weekend has been extended this year to mark the 60th anniversary of Peter Mark.

This year the team will be raising vital funds for Pieta from Sunday, October 10 until Saturday October 30.

Each Peter Mark salon across Kerry has been given the task of coming up with its own individual and unique way to raise money this year, so visitors to their local Peter Mark salon in Kerry can expect, sponsored walks, raffles, games in salon, and many other fun-filled events over the course of both weekends!

Pieta provides professional one-to-one therapeutic service to people who are in suicidal distress, those who engage in self-harm, and those bereaved by suicide.

All monies raised will go towards supporting the ongoing work of Pieta to provide lifesaving services and help those in distress.

Commenting on the launch, Peter O’Rourke, CEO, Peter Mark said, “This is the 10th year of the Petermarkathon and over the last decade we are delighted to say that we have raised over €600,000 for Irish charities across the country. I am so proud of our team who put their heart and soul into this initiative every year and I know it’s a highlight on the Peter Mark calendar.

To celebrate our 60th anniversary, this year we want to go bigger and better than ever. We have extended the event to run over three weeks and we look forward to raising as much money as possible to support the important work of Pieta across the country.”

Elaine Austin, CEO, Pieta said: “We are delighted to be chosen as the Petermarkathon charity partner for 2021 on its special anniversary. This partnership will help to sustain Pieta’s free, lifesaving services and will help those in distress move to a place of hope and light during these most challenging times. The support of Peter Mark will help us continue our work now and into the future and for this we are extremely grateful. Thank You.”
