Westlife’s Mark is joining bully KO cause

WESTLIFE superstar Mark Feehily last night became the latest celebrity to back our ‘Delete Cyber Bullies’ campaign

KO bullies … Westlife singer Mark Feehily in ISPCC campaign

Singer Mark has admitted he was a victim of vicious bullying in the past—and he vowed to do what he could to help kids who are tormented today.

Earlier this year, Mark took part in an ISPCC campaign and posed for harrowing snaps depicting his face badly bruised.

He told the Irish Sun, “It greatly upsets me to think that there are children out there who feel the only option left open to them is to take their own life.”

And he urged his fans to get behind our campaign demanding that the Minister for Children, Frances Fitzgerald, enforce laws to tackle the problem. He added, “Things need to change, and we won’t stop until they do; but in the meantime, I urge parents, teachers, schools, sports coaches, the media, and anyone with the ear of our youth to promote the anti-bullying message.

“And the Childline number is 1800 666 666 where children can talk to trained counsellors confidentially.”

NATIONAL suicide prevention organization Console yesterday urged anyone affected by cyber bullying to seek help from the organisation immediately.
