Northern Ireland personal injury firm JMK Solicitors has raised £10,000 this year so far for charity partner PIPS Suicide Prevention, in conjunction with accident management company CRASH Services.

PIPS Charity offers expert and unrestricted face-to-face counselling services to individuals who have been affected by suicide, extending support to families, friends, and colleagues.

The charity’s counselling services are accessible to everyone throughout Northern Ireland, thanks to its well-established centres in Belfast, Derry and Enniskillen.

JMK Solicitors, NI’s number 1 personal injury solicitors and CRASH Services, NI’s leading accident management company, have raised an impressive £10,000 so far this year for their charity partner, PIPS Suicide Prevention. This accomplishment is the outcome of their dedicated teams’ fundraising endeavours and commitment to supporting PIPS Charity in the awareness of suicide and mental health.

Renee Quinn, executive director at PIPS Charity, said: “PIPS Suicide Prevention Charity is thrilled to partner with CRASH Services and JMK Solicitors. It helps us to keep our doors open across the province to help and support those in crisis need.

“We have seen a phenomenal increase in our service uptake since Covid and the support CRASH Services and JMK Solicitors have been able to provide us with has been critical to helping us deliver for every client.”

Jonathan McKeown, chairman of JMK Solicitors and CEO at CRASH Services, said: “We are thrilled to have raised such a substantial amount for our incredible charity partner.

“Our team recognise the importance of focusing on mental health awareness and maximising our fundraising efforts for this outstanding service. We are proud to announce that for the first half of 2023, the team have raised £10,000, and there is more fundraising activity planned for the remainder of the year.”

He added: “The impressive half-year total was achieved through the creative fundraising initiatives devised by the staff. These initiatives included engaging fitness challenges, a hike up Slieve Donard, team participation in the Belfast City Marathon, and an Easter colouring competition.

“Furthermore, our compassionate employees have opted to participate in a monthly salary sacrifice scheme, making monthly donations. Additionally, for every app download, we contribute £1 towards the charity total.”
