Jigsaw calling on people to back ‘hike for hope’


Jigsaw, the youth mental health charity, is calling on people to strap on their boots for a fundraising hike this weekend.

‘Hike for Hope’ is a virtual fundraising challenge to raise funds for Jigsaw that will take place from Friday, May 27 to Sunday, May 29.

Organised in collaboration with Scout volunteers from across Ireland, Hike for Hope is free, and you can sign up online now at jigsaw.ie/hikeforhope

“Young people need hope, and our help, now more than ever. We need to spread hope in our communities and show young people that their communities value and support their mental health. We’re asking the whole of Ireland to get out and about and show our young people hope by Hiking for Hope and supporting Jigsaw!” said Michelle Comer of the Hike for Hope organising team.

All ages and all abilities can take part. Join in as an individual, with family, friends, your scout group, schoolmates, colleagues, anyone! Choose a hike or trail to complete and challenge yourself over the final weekend of May.

“We believe that we all have a part to play in creating an Ireland where every young person’s mental health is valued and supported,” said Justin McDermott from Jigsaw.

“Hike for Hope is a brilliant way for people of all ages and abilities to play their part and support the mental health of the young people they care about. Thank you to our incredible scout supporters who have developed Hike for Hope for Jigsaw, what an amazing idea!”

Sign up to Hike for Hope for free at jigsaw.ie/hikeforhope

You will also receive ongoing support and fundraising advice from the Jigsaw team. All funds raised go to Jigsaw and their work supporting young people’s mental health. Take on the challenge!
