Down Business Connect Golf Day

Down Business Connect Golf Day

Telecom Services were delighted to sponsor the 2nd Annual Down Business Connect Golf Day.

Down Business Connect’s annual golf day took place on Friday 15th Sept, at the picturesque Ardglass Golf Club – and raising £2400 for two great local charities PIPs and Suicide Down To Zero.

PIPS Charity offers a ‘no appointment’ service to ensure there is always someone to contact for a chat when a person might feel vulnerable, might be at risk of suicidal behaviours or in need of assistance or guidance . PIPS is your light in the dark. When a person comes to PIPS for help they will be spoken to immediately and a stay safe/support plan will be put in place.

Suicide Down To Zero‘s objectives are to preserve and protect the good mental and physical health of the public in Down District (the ‘area of benefit’) by:

(a) creating greater awareness of the causes of suicide to ensure that warning signs of suicide are acted upon;
(b) influencing policy and delivery in the field of suicide prevention, particularly with regard to the provision of prevention, intervention and support services in the area of benefit;
(c) engaging with, promoting co-operation among, and establishing strategic partnerships between groups, organisations and agencies in the voluntary, community and statutory sectors.
