SOSAD ( Save Our Sons And Daughters) is a non-profit organisation that provides free counselling services and support to people who are struggling with:
- Suicidal Ideation
- Stress & Anxiety
They are shortly opening an office in Portlaoise to serve the people of Laois. Suicide is sadly and tragically on the rise and Laois desperately needs this service. Five lovely souls have ended their lives in Laois over the last few months alone.
In order to finance this office, the newly established SOSAD Laois Branch has organised a Virtual Variety Night ( Online Show) featuring acts from all over the county, this show will be broadcast to the people of Laois & beyond on Sunday 6th of June at 8 pm.
Those participating in the event are all local people who have volunteered to participate, they play a very important role and are the “Stars of the Show”. The stellar line up includes Laois Comhaltas, Music Generation Laois ( accompanying the Lynam School of Irish Dancing), Portlaoise GAA, Portlaoise Musical Society, Portlaoise Pantomime Group, Portlaoise Panthers, One of a Kind, popular Priest, Fr Paddy Byrne and Fr. Liam Lawton, Laois School of Music and Heywood Community School. Country Music star Michael English will perform on the night
Well known people including Clare Byrne, Brent Pope and David Norris have kindly come on board to judge the event.
