Pieta House has signed up to a month-long sponsorship of the health and wellness segment, ‘Mind Yourself Now’ on the Dermot & Dave show at Today FM.
The partnership is to mark the lead up to FeelGood Week, which will take place from October 20th to 27th. This initiative is designed to help people #FindtheFeeling through a nationwide campaign of wellness, mindfulness, active, social and fun events.
Pieta House is calling on people to get together with family, friends or workmates to organise a FeelGood event. It can be anything at all – from yoga sessions, a book club get together or that great hike along the Wild Atlantic Way. It could even be that reunion lunch with some old friends.
Getting in on the action, Today FM’s Dermot & Dave have come up with their own fundraiser and they’re inviting their listeners along. The lads will host a free lunch-time comedy gig at The Sugar Club in Dublin city centre on Thursday 17th October. Comedians Danny O’Brien and Damian Clarke will also take part. Dermot & Dave are asking those who work in the area, to pop in over their lunchtime and enjoy a laugh while raising funds for Pieta House.
Adelle Nolan, Today FM Content Director commented: “Today FM and The Dermot & Dave Show are absolutely delighted to get behind such a great initiative and charity. The showcase aims to surprise and delight and we encourage everyone to donate generously on the day.”
Brian Higgins, CEO, Pieta House said: “What you do is not important – it’s all about taking the time and reminding yourself how good you can feel, reaching out to others and enjoying time together. You’ll also be helping raise vital funds for those among us who struggle with feelings of hopelessness or despair.”
