Today September 10th is World Suicide Prevention Day.
Many of us have been personally touched by its terrible hand, as there has been a very high rate of suicide in Duhallow for many years. Look out for those around you, help them, and above all listen.
C103 gave out candles yesterday in the square, but you can use any candle, just light it near a window at 8pm tonight to show your support for suicide prevention, to think of the survivors, and to remember those lost loved ones.
The Street Fleet were there from 10am to 11:30am this morning, and have moved onto Macroom
World Suicide Prevention Day takes place on September 10th. On that night there is a world-wide campaign to light a candle near a window at 8 PM to show your support for suicide prevention to remember a lost loved one and for the survivors of suicide.
We at C103 have candles for our listeners to light at 8pm and the Street Fleet will be travelling around the county handing out the candles. The Street Fleet will be in Millstreet and Macroom on this Wednesday the 9th.
