Darkness into Light LoughreaBusinesses called on to support Darkness into Light Loughrea

Loughrea Chamber of Commerce has called on businesses to support Darkness into Light Loughrea. Taking place on Saturday, 6th of May, the first ever Darkness into Light Loughrea is a unique, early morning fundraising event which begins in darkness. Hundreds of people from Loughrea and the surrounding area are expected to walk, jog or run a 5km route while dawn is breaking, coming out in force and in solidarity with Pieta House and those who have been touched by suicide and self-harm.

The appeal was made by the organisers of Darkness into Light Loughrea. The group would deeply appreciate if the businesses in Loughrea would make a monetary contribution to pay for the event lighting, start line decorations, HOPE signs along the route, and perhaps get on board in the lead up to the event with the official t- shirts on mannequins in fashion shops.

Darkness into Light Loughrea would also like to participate in the St. Patrick’s Day Parade. If businesses have any suggestions or ideas for the parade the group would love to know.

Businesses who would like to support Darkness into Light Loughrea should get in touch with Jennifer at the following email address,, and all information will be passed on to the group. If businesses wish to contact Darkness into Light Loughrea directly, please email Eilis on the following email address  or

The event in Loughrea will help raise funds for and bring awareness of the free services that are offered at Pieta House to those in suicidal crisis, people who engage in self-harm and those bereaved by suicide. Any support for this event, no matter how small, would be deeply appreciated.
