6 May: Darkness into Light

Darkness Into Light (DIL) is Pieta House’s flagship annual fundraising and awareness event.

Last year 130,000 people shared the light to promote suicide prevention and to tackle the stigma around talking about suicide and self harm. This year, there are roughly 150 DIL venues across Ireland and worldwide. Please join us on Saturday 6th May 2017!

Events in Ormeau Park and Hannahstown, Belfast will be fundraising for both Pieta House and Lighthouse (based in Duncairn Gardens in Belfast).

All of the events around the world start at 4.15am on Saturday 6th May, so participants both literally and symbolically walk from Darkness Into Light.


Volunteers are needed to help with course marshaling, registration, t-shirt distribution and refreshments. Apply online for your preferred venue:

Ormeau Park, Belfast

Hannahstown, Belfast
