Well known as the friendly face behind The Squealing Pig bar here in Muff, this young man is now part of the Muff Mayoral Campaign 2017. But just why is Luke part of this campaign and what are his reasons for choosing his two charities: Foyle Sea and Rescue and Pieta House?

Luke told me earlier this week that he was raising money for Foyle Search and Rescue because of all the work that they do. “They all do this voluntarily and give their time to this very worthy cause. They have helped many families throughout Derry city with their great work and dedication.”



Luke added: “I’m raising money for Pieta House because myself and many other people have been personally affected by suicide. Not enough is done to help people who are suffering from depression and thoughts of suicide.”

Everyone in the local area and beyond can relate to both these charities and are sure to be behind Luke in all his fundraising events leading up to the Muff Festival 2017.

Both Mayoral candidates this year have chosen charities very close to their hearts and indeed close to all our community and further afield. This is not a campaign just about wearing that ‘chain’. It’s about raising much needed funds for much needed charities.

Do give generously to both charities Luke is helping.
