Londis & KITKAT Support Pieta House

For every KITKAT Four Finger bar sold in Londis stores from 3rd- 6th September a donation of €1 will be made to Pieta House

Bonnie Ryan joined Londis and Nestlé Ireland to announce that all proceeds from KITKAT four finger chocolate bars sold in Londis stores nationwide from Thursday 3rd– Sunday 6th September will be donated to Pieta House.

Pieta works to support people and communities in crisis by providing free counselling and assistance to those who are at risk of suicide, engaging in self-harm and those bereaved by suicide. Pieta operates a network of 19 centres across the country including outreach services, employing over 200 therapists and admin staff.

All funds raised will aid other services, such as the 24/7 Helpline, which has seen an increase in calls since Covid-19.

Speaking at the launch, Rachel Murphy, Fundraising Director at Pieta, said, “I want to thank Londis and Nestlé Ireland for coming together and supporting Pieta through this initiative. In so doing, they are signalling the value and necessity of suicide prevention – a strong gesture of solidarity for all those silently suffering. We know the services of Pieta are now needed more than ever in these times of crisis, and it is important that people know that we are here and they are not alone.”

Conor Hayes, Londis Sales Director, added: “Londis is very proud of what we have helped achieve by strongly supporting the important work Pieta is engaged in through our charity partnership over the past six years. Londis retailers have climbed mountains, jumped out of airplanes, braved obstacle courses and undertaken challenging cycles to help raise over €500,000 for Pieta. We are delighted to be working with Nestlé Ireland on this initiative.”
