We provide education and support to people affected by depression across NI

Charity Registration No. Northern Ireland


Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

The Fight. 8 weeks of intensive training culminating in me getting into the ring to face an as yet unknown opponent.

Ive no experience in boxing and this is gonna be tough. I may be fit, but all the swimming, biking and running in the world hasnt prepared me for getting punched in the head repeatedly. Or even once.

I dont try to raise money for charity too often as I dont want to pester people, and I feel that when I do, i really need to push myself and step outside my comfort zone and on this occasion Ive REALLY done that.

This is gonna be tough and I appreciate every penny that you contribute. Please give a few quid, share the page, link it on facebook, etc etc... You dont need to give that much, every penny counts so even a small text donation makes a difference.

Aware Defeat Depression works in N.I. for people with the devastating illness of depression, cited in 75% of suicides.In 2007, 5 people a week took their life in N.I. Many of them were young & should have had a long & happy life. Instead they felt unable to ask for help when they needed it. Donations to the charity will save lives & help people to lead fulfilling lives again

If you want, you can even donate by text message. Simply text ASTY50 £1 to 70070 and that puts a quid stright into the total. Its simple, easy and helps a lot without you having to worry too much about how much money is in your account right now. You can increase the test amount if you wish by simply increasing the number (eg test ASTY50 £10 to 70070). There is no cost for this and all the money comes straight to the total.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer. So it’s the most efficient way to donate - I raise more, whilst saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

So please dig deep and donate now.
