Brasserie Le Pont donating 10% of revenue to Pieta House on World Suicide PreventionAwareness Day

06Sep11

 Dublin restaurant Brasserie le Pont is donating 10% of revenue generated on the evening of Saturday 10th September, World Suicide Prevention Awareness Day, to Pieta House, the Irish charity focused on the prevention of suicide and self harm. The restaurant will also give customers the option to make a donation.

“Customers would also get a little envelope and a flyer should they wish to make a donation,” explains general manager Fiona Kelly. “Most people out there have been touched whether directly or indirectly by suicide therefore it is a cause close to many people’s hearts. We are hoping to get lots of bookings to help Pieta House on the great work they are doing to help people suffering in Ireland.”

According to Pieta House, 486 people (386 men and 100 women) died by suicide in Ireland in 2010. The suicide crisis centre has also experienced a 40% increase in the number of people approaching them for help in the first six months of 2011. It is advisable to book in advance.
