In addition to raising funds, Exigent used these opportunities to raise awareness of the issue of suicide in Ireland and to garner public support for the 3TS’ campaign for a Suicide Prevention Authority via a petition and a successful Twitter campaign.
During this time, the team at Exigent also noted additional benefits to their regular working practice citing enhanced teamwork & bonding opportunities as clear advantages of their charitable endeavours.
Exigent Networks chose the 3TS charity based on its current work in the suicide prevention sector and specifically for its campaign for the formation of a Suicide Prevention Authority.
“The devastating effects of suicide are very much in evidence in practically every community and business sector in Ireland” according to Cillian McCarthy, Director, Exigent Networks.
“Our key reason for choosing 3TS was their current petition to Government for the formation of a Suicide Prevention Authority. We share their belief that only a co-ordinated Suicide Prevention Authority akin to the Road Safety Authority can effectively address the issue of suicide and tackle the number of needless deaths by suicide each year. We would urge everyone to sign their petition on www.3ts.ie We would also like to thank everyone who got behind us during the last year – team members and supporters alike. Working together on a shared interest outside of our core work was of considerable benefit to all involved and we look forward to a new challenge again this year”.
Founder of 3TS, Noel Smyth, said: “We are extremely grateful to Exigent Networks for their generosity and would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to the team for their goodwill and support for the formation of a Suicide Prevention Authority.
Activities such as these are important to Irish society as whilst raising much needed funds for suicide prevention, they also raise awareness of the issue of suicide in Ireland and demonstrate the support available within Ireland’s business community.”
