Fingal volunteers sought for abseil

Jigsaw are calling on people from across Fingal to take a stand with them for young people's mental health on Saturday, May 4 at their Croke Park abseil, proudly supported by Arthur Cox.

There are just 60 places up for grabs to take on this challenge, which aims to raise over €30,000 to support Jigsaw in delivering their vital services for young people experiencing mental health difficulties.

'I absolutely loved the Jigsaw Croke Park Abseil,' said Justin McDermott, who took part in last year's abseil.

He added: 'It was an incredible experience to be in the GAA HQ for the day with Jigsaw.

'I was terrified at the top, but once I had my feet firmly on the pitch I wanted to do it all over again!

'It's a great way to support Jigsaw and youth mental health whist having an amazing and memorable experience.'

You can register your interest in taking part online at, or by calling the Jigsaw Fundraising Team on 01 472 7010.

There is a €50 registration fee, and participants are asked to raise a minimum of €300. Jigsaw will be there with you every step of the way, giving ideas and support to help you reach your fundraising target.
