There’s still time to register for Darkness Into Light, which takes place at 4.15am this Saturday morning, May 7, at two locations in Fermanagh.
Following last year’s successful event, which raises money for suicide prevention charity Piety House, in Lisnaskea, huge numbers are expected again for the 5km walk at both Lisnaskea and Belleek.
Last year, Lisnaskea was one of the first locations to host a Darkness Into Light walk in the North, with the event raising over £10,000 for Pieta House. This year the county will see another first, with the Belleek event being the only cross-border walk in the country.
There’s still time to register, with registration for both the Lisnaskea and Belleek events open until right up until 4am on Saturday morning. However, participants who have not yet registered are urged to show up early, around 3.30am. Those who already have a t-shirt are also urged to be there for 3.45am for this year’s warm up.
In Belleek, the walk will be starting from the GAA centre, and The Forge restaurant will be open for breakfast and tea after the walk. Anyone free to lend a hand on Friday night or Saturday morning is also urged to attend. For more information and updates visit Darkness Into Light, Belleek on Facebook.
In Lisnaskea, with large numbers expected, people are urged to use the following car parks: St Ronan’s Chapel Car Park, if coming from Knocks; the town car park at the back of the new library, if coming from Derrylin/Kinawley; and St Ronan’s Hall, if coming from Brookeborough/Maguiresbridge/Enniskillen.
