Perth to be lit up with torches


Tracy Swan, a fellow campaigner in Perth is organising an event following the tragic deaths relating to suicide in Perth.

Tracy Swan, who actively campaigns to raise awareness over suicide and self harm is planning a mass event held at South Inch on May 9th, 2015.

Members of the public are being asked to bring torches and to meet at the South Inch Car park at 4.15am. (Yes, AM will be the time) The parade march will be starting at the South Inch, leading on to Tay Street and then finishing at the North Inch.

Many people will be remembered at the peaceful event, such as Jack Syme and others.

It is expected the event will be a successful turnout.

Tracy added: “It will also be in memory of Dan. Jodie, Morgan, Jack and the many many more people Perth and surrounding areas have lost. Also letting Perth people know there is a huge issue with self harm. Everyone’s to bring a torch and they will walk from South Inch car park along Tay Street and around North Inch once.”
