Good guys at Goodman to hold charity events

Employees from Goodman Medical Ireland Limited charity of the year committee are organising a fundraising Car Boot Sale this Saturday at Eamon Deacy Park, Terryland, Galway City.

Vans are €15 Cars €10 Browsing is free! Gates open from 9.30am to sellers and to the general public from 10:00am-2:00pm. Also on Friday October 18 there will be a table quiz and raffle in Lohan’s Bar & Restaurant, Salthill. Entry fee €40 for a table of four. All proceeds will be going to their chosen charity of the year for 2013 ‘Positive Mental Health Foundation.’

Positive Mental Health Foundation was established in June 2005 with their primary goal to introduce mental health awareness as early as possible in the school cycle, through simple and unique training. With the help of trained volunteers, Positive Mental Health attend secondary schools throughout Galway City and County, Counties Clare, Sligo and Offaly delivering workshops to transition year students on a variety of modules on attitudes and lifestyle choices which affect mental health.

“The main issues are not much different from what we encountered when we started, eight years ago - self-image, binge drinking, peer pressure, exam stress, choosing the right friends and psychological wellbeing. We are, above all, about prevention, intervention and inclusion,” said a spokesperson.

The car boot sale event coincides with World Mental Health Day today (October 10 ) which is annually celebrated as a day for global mental health education, awareness and advocacy.
