Family, friends and co-workers of the late mother-of-two, Louise Donnan, presented a cheque for an incredible £2,277 to suicide awareness and prevention charity, PIPS Hope and Support.

The amount was raised through a 5km walk along the Scarva-Poyntzpass towpath, which was organised in memory of the Gilford woman who died suddenly in August of last year at the age of 33.

Louise was the mother of two beautiful girls, Katie and Sophie; the daughter of Margaret and Declan and sister to Leanne, Paula, Ciara, Adam, Jordon and Aaron.

Mourners at her funeral heard how Louise was a great worker who took a lot of pride and pleasure in her job working for the Trust, out looking after the elderly and the disabled within the community and nothing was ever too much for her.

She spent a lot of her childhood in the family caravan in Donegal, getting up to all the mischief of the day, even on occasions climbing back in through the window just in time for when her dad, Declan, was heading out to work.

Louise had a great passion for Boxer dogs – she loved walking her dog Tyson – she loved him, she loved listening to music and was always ready for a mug of tea.

Sadly, Louise had suffered over the last three years of her life with ill health – seizures and constant headaches – resulting in hospital stays for periods of time.

Unfortunately, her last seizure and the resulting mental health anguish led to her sudden passing.
