Annual Remembrance collection in Camlough on Christmas Eve 2021 in honour of Stephen and John Farrell
On Christmas Eve 2021, Sean, and Brian Farrell, championed by many of their family members, friends and neighbours and regardless of rainy weather conditions, raised an amazing £8,506.34
The funds will go directly towards supporting PIPS Hope and Support and the crucial crisis, self-harm, trauma and bereavement counselling and support services we provide.
The total collected over the 9 years to date has now amounted to a mammoth £52,752.56
Sean and Brian, on behalf of the Farrell family, express gratitude to everyone who collected on the day and raised funds in other ways to support their fundraising. They offered a special thanks to the commuters and others who gave so generously and to everyone who endorsed them in any way.
At the cheque presentation, PIPS Hope and Support’s CEO, Seamus McCabe thanked Sean and Brian for the continued support. “As per previous years, it is heart-warming to see the success of the Farrell family’s traditional street collection and the kindness that is displayed, which has made a huge difference to the lives of families and individuals who are mentally or emotionally distressed and in need of meaningful support, helping to save lives from suicide. The weather has never deterred the Farrell family and we would like to also thank the Farrell’s friends and all the collectors as well as every one of you who supported the family; your efforts are very much appreciated.”
