Electric Ireland together with Pieta House – organisers of Darkness Into Light - and its partnering charities have joined with some of Northern Ireland’s best known personalities to raise awareness that how we treat each other is a matter of life and death whilst also helping to de-stigmatise suicide and self-harm.

Jamie-Lee O’Donnell of TV hit Derry Girls said: “This is such an important campaign, I’m delighted to be supporting the beneficiary charities and Electric Ireland in delivering the message of Darkness Into Light for the 2018 walk. I know that together we can help contribute to this global movement and spread a message of hope, self-care and acceptance.” Visit to register for the Londonderry Walk which starts at Sainabury’s.
