Thomas Monaghan, Campaigns and Communications Officer, UCD Students’ Union said;

‘This is a fantastic opportunity for the community of UCD and our neighbours to come together and support this amazing charity. Everyone knows someone who has been affected by suicide or self-harm and we as students want to stand with our peers, our staff and our neighbours to remove stigma and to raise much needed funds for Pieta House.’
