Yes, that chain. We all know that chain, sure 161,000 of us now follow the Instagram account dedicated to Connell Waldron’s chain. Who’d have thought it, eh?

Normal People’s Paul Mescal, who plays heartthrob, Connell Waldron, has teamed up with Ireland’s leading suicide and self-harm prevention charity, to raffle off a personal chain and raise much-needed funds for Pieta.

The postponement of Pieta’s flagship fundraiser, Darkness into Light, left the charity with a very significant gap in their funding. As Pieta relies on the public for 80% of its funding to ensure they can provide continuous availability of their national mental health service free of charge, the charity has had to come up with other ways to raise the much funds. Enter, Connell’s chain.

The raffle will be open for two weeks from today, May 25th until Monday, June 8th, and all you have to do to enter is to make a donation. Donations start at €10, which is the cost to fund one lifesaving call to Pieta’s 24-hour freephone helpline, and the more you donate, the more chances you have of winning. So €10 for 10 entries, €15 for 20 entries, and so on.

Speaking about Pieta’s charity raffle, Paul Mescal, said, “I am delighted to be able to help Pieta by raffling off one of my own chains. Pieta is a cause very close to my heart, having experienced loss due to suicide in my local town while growing up. Suicide and depression are themes directly linked to Normal People especially around episodes 9 and 10 which is why I want to help those in similar situations.”
