Darkness Into Light, a walk held annually to raise funds for Pieta’s free services, is to take place May 11 2019.
Elaine Austen, Pieta CEO commented the launch of the mural: “Darkness Into Light is vital for fundraising, for raising awareness and for bringing people together from rural communities to major cities across the globe in a spirit of solidarity, comfort and compassion in giving all hope.”
She added: “Social connection is the heart beat of Pieta, it’s about removing the feeling of isolation and to spark conversation about the importance of mental health and well being in all our lives.”
