Support for Larne PIPS Larne is gaining momentum in the community.
The suicide awareness charity has extended thanks to a number of local organisations for their donations and ongoing support.
In particular, PIPS Larne would like to thank Martin Longmore and William Laverty, who with the very generous help of “Rinty” and others from 147 snooker club in Antrim, ran a very successful poker tournament at the Wellington Rec Club in memory of Martin Kennedy.
The event was enjoyed by everyone who took part and included an auction for a signed snooker cue donated by Mark Allen, from Antrim, raising the sum of £1,000.56.
PIPS Larne would also like to to thank the Larne-based Tuesday Group, which donated £40 and Mulholland’s funeral directors who donated furniture and office equipment which was “greatly appreciated”.
Also thanks are extended to the Lone Wolves bikers who raised £200 for PIPS Larne at their recent rally at Larne Rugby Club.
PIPS Larne has also thanked Omniplex Cinemas which raised £1,103.66 for the charity through a screening of “Good Will Hunting” in memory of actor Robin Williams.
