Downpatrick Lions Club members have continued their sterling charity work and have presented a cheque for £1,000 to Downpatrick Suicide Down to Zero.
The money was raised during a recent street collection and quiz night organised by the Lions Club and handed over to Suicide Down to Zero (SDZ0000) co-founder and Secretary Pat McGreevy along with David Smith (Chair) and Joe Canavan (Board Member).
Pat McGreevy said: “The funds will go a long way to financing the training of suicide first-aiders and first-responders for SDZ0000, and identify those who are at risk.
“We are also engaged in lobbying at both local and governmental level for greater awareness and funding for this under-resourced and vulnerable section of society.
“If you or someone you know is in distress or despair, contact Lifeline which is there to help on 0808 808 8000,24 hours a day, seven days a week. Or contact David Smith on 07852 931845.have continued their
