This event will be free to enjoy but we would ask that you consider making a suitable donation to the PIPS Charity.
PIPS Charity provides support to individuals who are considering, or who have at some point considered, ending their own lives. PIPS also provide support to those families
& friends who have been touched by suicide.
We feel strongly that at this time, such a charity is worthy of your support. You may make a donation in your own way or by Paypal via firstname.lastname@example.org (Catchlight have volunteered to collect donations).
We would ask all club Secretaries and Chairs to actively encourage all their members to attend and make a success of our NIPA Day and celebrate the very best of our shared passion.
