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.

The Geddis Family is extremely excited to annouce the merging of our two passions together to create our second major fundrasier for 2019. Karate and Mental Health Awareness.

Since July we have sought out the UK and ROI's best fighters to invite them to participate in Northern Ireland's first ever cash prize Karate Event taking place on Friday 6th December 2019 in the Magherabuoy House Hotel Portrush.

With some very familiar faces travelling to Northern Ireland to take part in the event, it is sure to be one of the North Coasts best fighting events of this year.
It has been amazing to make contact with the men chosen and hear their own personal touching stories on how much mental health awareness means to them.

Tickets for the event go on sale on Wednesday 18th: £20 for premier seats and £15 for standard.

We will be releasing the fighters in the weeks leading to the 6th December and we hope that everyone can join us in creating a night to remember, where all proceeds go directly to the Zachary Geddis Break the Silence Trust.

We only have 300 tickets for sale and it will be a first come, first serve basis.

Please like, share and comment to anyone who you may think would be interested in attending!

Thanks,

Yasmin 🙂

Great morning at Northern Regional College in Ballymoney 🦋
It’s great interacting with students and informing them of the work we do within the community and how we can assist them if they need us.

Thanks to Helena and Sharne for coming down to help 😊
