Video: Two Belfast men are walking to Killarney to raise vital funds for suicide charity


Two Belfast men are walking all the way to Kerry in a bid to raise money to help fight suicide.

James Perkins and his friend Che Matthews are leaving Belfast on Saturday to take on the 350-mile trek in a bid to raise vital funds for the charity PIPS.

James said, "We are walking from Belfast to Killarney for PIPS Belfast because far too many lives are being lost to suicide."

James said the idea to take a long walk for suicide first raised last summer.

"I am doing this in memory of my sister's godson," he added, "Suicide is a massive problem in the area.

"It's young and old and it has affected everybody over the years."

James and his pal Che are setting off on their journey to Killarney on Saturday, July 29.
