Charity of the Year

2018-2020 Charity Partners
PIPS Upper Bann and PIPS Hope and Support

Since 2013, our Charity of the Year scheme has raised over £268,000 to support local charities.

In January we established a 2 year joint partnership with PIPS Upper Bann and PIPS Hope and Support (formally PIPS Newry and Mourne).  The charities were nominated by staff and chosen by a Selection Panel as the Trust’s charity partners.

THANK YOU to our staff and anyone else who was involved in any way to help us raise awareness and vital funds for both PIPS charities.

As at the end of the partnership in March 2020 the Southern Trust raised £50,268.71

This money is split equally between both PIPS charities and will enable PIPS Hope and Support and PIPS Upper Bann to provide 2,010 x 1 hour Crisis Counselling sessions (each session costs £25 per hour) for people who are at risk of suicide and people who self-harm in the Southern Trust area.
