Keep the Light On

Zachary Geddis Break the Silence Trust is established as a permanent legacy of Zachary, who at only 20 years of age, took his own life after a long battle with his mental health. ZGBTST is a non-profit charity that offers the local community counselling, workshops, and drop-in sessions. 

Our Keep the Light on Campaign is a hallmark of the ZGBTST mission. Keep the Light On was launched to support those who have lost their lives to suicide, those bereaved by suicide or victims of mental illness.  Our Keep the Light On candle is at the heart of this campaign and is a guiding light for those lost as well as a point of hope. You can purchase one of our candles from our shop here.

A light has been shining in the Geddis home since March 18th, 2017. In 2019 Terry Geddis placed a candle in the 120 towns he cycled through. In 2020 Terry lit up the entire Isle of Ireland with hope and a reminder that the future is bright.

100% of funds raised in aid of ZGBTST are directed back into supporting vulnerable members of the community.

Thank you♥
