Welcome to the Zachary Geddis Break The Silence Trust (ZGBTST)

 

‘The Zachary Geddis Break The Silence Trust aims to bring more awareness to the community of Northern Ireland surrounding the topic of Mental Health and decrease the stigma surrounding Suicide.’

-Established in October 2017-

Dedicated to being the on-going voice of Zachary Geddis, who suffered with mental health issues from the age of 16. We aim to be the voice of those suffering in silence and to help those who believe they can no longer be helped.

We are a voluntary ran organisation, developed by the Geddis Family (Terry, Louise & Yasmin) to assist those in need across Northern Ireland and futher afield. Since establishment in 2017, we have become one of NI’s most respected and well-known grassroot charities.

Working closley with our local community has helped us grow as a charity that people trust, turn too and promote as our journey to our end goal continues. We provide everyone with 24 hour crisis support and document our own mental health journey’s on The Original Superstar Blog.

Zachary Geddis Break the Silence Trust

👏 👏 excited for this 🦋We're so happy to announce our decision to have a chosen charity for each of our events.

The charity will be able to host a collection bucket/tin and provide some promotional materials for our customers to view.

If you have a cause specifically close to your heart, please get in touch with us to let us know. We would prefer to use our platform to help support local charities and not larger charities (i.e. our first event's charity will be Zachary Geddis Break the Silence Trust - we would prefer not to use national charities, as our whole aim is to promote and support local).
