Allstate NI Employees Raise £8,878 for Local Charity

33 brave Allstate Northern Ireland employees took part in a charity Firewalk on November 7th to help raise much needed funds for PIPS, a Suicide Prevention and Awareness Charity, raising a grand total of £8,878.

The ANIbody committee was established as part of Allstate Northern Ireland's Corporate Social Responsibility programme. Employees were asked to pitch their ideas for new community programs to a Dragons' Den type and ANIBody was one of the winning teams. They received some seed money to get their idea off the ground but needed to increase this amount by fundraising so the idea of the Firewalk was born.

The money raised by the Fire Walk will allow further training to take place as well as the committee working on a second phase where they hope to take the education sessions out to schools and colleges.

Suicide doesn't have any boundaries—it can hit us, a member of our family, a friend, a work colleague at any stage of our lives. This campaign in association with PIPS provides half day workshops across Allstate NI to educate employees on how to LOOK>LISTEN>and LINK so they can protect themselves and others from suicide risk and also provides advice on how they can look after their own mental health. Over 200 employees have completed the training course so far. The idea being that they can then spot the signs of suicide in friends, family members, colleagues etc. before it's too late.

Congratulations to all of the Firewalkers who were extremely brave and thanks to everyone who supported them in raising this fantastic amount of money!
