A team of brave riders are undertaking an epic 72-hour motorbike rally, driving to and photographing each of the 17 Jigsaw services across the country to raise money to fund the essential free, confidential, and non-judgemental early intervention youth mental health services for young people that Jigsaw provide.
From Thursday June 15th to Saturday June 17th two avid bikers from Jigsaw, Damian Sheridan and Daryl D’Art will commence their GRAND TOUR Photo Challenge 2023 along with 6 other motorcyclists, Dave Perry, Tony Golding, Ken McGrevey, Donal Doyle and Mark Sheridan supported by David Fee & Mark O’Riordian in the follow up van.
Jigsaw is a youth mental charity that understands and support young people’s mental health through early intervention both online and in person. They give advice and support to help young people aged 12 to 25 years-old and give families, educators, and those who support young people’s mental health ways to cope and the skills to be there for young people.
Recent analysis from the Economic and Social Research Institute (ESRI) has shown the stark impact of Covid, with 40% of young men and 55% of young women classified as depressed.
You can show your support by joining PJ & Jim broadcasting Morning Glory live and setting the riders off on their journey from Joe Duffy Motorrad Showroom from 6am on Thursday June 15th where there will be a coffee van, and opportunity to donate and support this amazing cause.
