Darkness into Light walk will take place in London on Friday night 5th of May into Saturday morning 6th of May. It is a unique, early morning experience which begins in darkness at 4.15am as thousands of people walk or run a 5km route while dawn is breaking. The early dawn represents hope and is symbolic of the work of Pieta House; bringing people from darkness back into the light. This year will see members of the popular Irish band; the Monday Club, JP O’Donnell and Liam Gill lead the walk with members of the committee. The funds raised in London are equally split between the Pieta House charity in Ireland and Icap based in London and Birmingham.
