Bray People - - NEWS -

A Bray man has raised more than €600 for Pi­eta House sim­ply by cul­ti­vat­ing a mus­tache.

Joe Car­roll is the ju­nior school care­taker at St Fer­gal’s school in Bray.

He de­cided to do ‘Movem­ber’ for the sui­cide char­ity.

‘ Thank you to ev­ery­one who sup­ported me,’ said Joe after hav­ing had a shave.

He ex­plained that Pi­eta House helps pre­vent sui­cide and self harm.

‘ The de­mand for help is gone very high for peo­ple with dis­tress­ing is­sues, es­pe­cially at Christ­mas,’ he said.

‘Pi­eta House fund­ing is from pub­lic do­na­tions and hope­fully this money will go to help some­one who needs support or has dif­fi­culty deal­ing with day to day life.’

He said that the fig­ures for peo­ple end­ing their own lives are fright­en­ing.

‘Some­times we are not aware un­til it is too late.’
