“In July 2017 I intend to carry my washing machine to the summit of Africa’s highest peak, Mount Kilimanjaro! My goal is to raise vital funds for Pieta House and to spread a positive mental health message and I hope you will join me for this once in a lifetime experience.Why a washing machine? It symbolises the heavy hidden load that many people carry and the importance of asking for help and sharing the load.” For more information about Enda visit the Pieta Challenge Facebook page or call him on 0866772154.
Pieta House, the centre for the prevention of self-harm and suicide opened its doors a decade ago with Lucan in County Dublin the centre of operations. In the intervening years we have seen and helped over 20,000 people in suicidal distress or engaging in self-harm, and established eight subsequent centres, three in the greater Dublin area – Ballyfermot, Tallaght and Finglas and five further centres to cater for the rest of the country in Limerick, Cork, Tipperary, Galway and Kerry.
