North West STOP to host Odd Socks Day and memorial walk

North West STOP growing rapidly

To mark Mental Health Week, North West STOP, the charity which provides a range of mental health services for all age groups, including children and adolescents, invites you to three events.
The aim is to get the important message out into the public arena that: it's OK not to be OK and it's absolutely OK to ask for help.
This year Mental Health Week Ireland takes place from October 7-13.
The events organised by STOP are as follows:

Odd Socks Day
This fundraiser takes place on October 7 (or between 3-10). Last year this event raised over €10,500 and paid for Free Counselling Services during Oct, Nov and early Dec. Join in and share with friends / colleagues to make it a success in 2021.
Schools, businesses, colleges and organisations are invited to participate by wearing an “Odd” pair of socks for one day and donate €2 to North West STOP.
