Pacem is delighted to announce that a total of £4786.50 was handed over to Survivors of Suicide Support Group as a result of the team fundraising effort for the Belfast City Marathon, which took place on 3rd October 2021. Members of the Pacem team undertook the gruelling marathon in a bid to raise money and awareness for a local, East Belfast charity, that exists to help those who have been bereaved or affected by suicide, a situation that sadly, too many families have been touched by.

Pictured at the handover over last week, Claire Curran, Head of Services, Survivors of Suicide Support Group said, “These vital funds raised by Pacem will be used to support those who have been bereaved or affected by suicide. Our organisation helps alleviate distress and offers assistance to people who have suffered loss through suicide or anguish through self-harm by loved ones, in particular by the development of support systems within the community. These funds will go  a long way in helping people in the local community that need us during these times and we can’t thank the team at Pacem enough for their hard work and efforts”.
