Paul Mescal chain
Normal People star Paul Mescal is raffling off a chain to raise money for Pieta.
Funding for the charity has dropped this year due to Darkness Into Light being postponed.
Paul, who plays Connell in the programme, is offering one of his own chains, as he gave the one he wore in the show to his co-star Daisy Edgar Jones.
He says it's a cause very close to his heart, having experienced loss due to suicide in his local town while growing up.
The raffle will be open for two weeks from today, May 25th, until Monday June 8th.
To be in with a chance to win Paul’s chain and support Pieta, visit https://go.rallyup.com/chainforpieta and simply make a donation to enter.
There will be four options to choose from.
Donations start at €10, which is also the cost to fund one lifesaving call to Pieta’s 24-hour freephone helpline.
- 10 Entries €10
- 20 Entries €15
- 30 Entries €25
- 60 Entries €50
