One of Ireland’s most established esports organisations, Nuclear Storm Gaming, have been praised for their work around supporting Lisburn-based suicide and self-harm prevention charity, Emerge Counselling Services.
NSG announced their partnership with the charity at the beginning of this year and have since started a fundraising initiative to raise money that will be donated to the charity in the form of selling winter beanies. The beanies are manufactured by Community Interest Company, Noggin Sport who are dedicated to raising awareness of the effects of mental illness in sport. All of Noggin Sports’ profits go straight into supporting mental health awareness projects across the UK & Ireland as well as NSG ensuring that all profits made from selling the beanies on their end, will be donated to their charity partner Emerge to fight against the biggest killer of young men in Ireland, suicide. An issue very close to the heart of NSG Managing Director Stuart McAllister.
Stuart tragically lost a family member to suicide and hopes that he can do everything he can in esports to ensure that no family has to go through the heartache that he and his family faced.
As it stands over 50% of the beanies have now been sold with just 22 remaining.

Well done to Stuart and his team in their support for mental health awareness and services.
