Paul Mescal Delighted to Raffle Off Personal Chain for Suicide Prevention Charity

The actor playing Connell Waldron on 'Normal People' is offering the simple jewellery item his character wore on the show to help raise money for Irish charity Pieta.

AceShowbiz - "Normal People" star Paul Mescal is raffling off one of the chains his character wore on the hit BBC drama to raise money for a suicide prevention charity.

Connell Waldron was never seen without the simple jewellery item on the show and now it has its own online following thanks to the international success of the series.

Mescal previously claimed he gave one chain to his co-star, Daisy Edgar-Jones, as a wrap gift, but it seems another in his possession - and he's offering it up to one lucky fan to aid Irish charity Pieta.

"Please support if you can," he tweeted, adding a link to the charity initiative.

A tweet from the organisers reads: "Paul Mescal @mescal_paul who plays leading man Connell Waldron in hit show @NormalPeopleBBC... has kindly donated one of his personal chains to Pieta for a raffle. If you'd like to be in with a chance to win head to & donate! #NormalPeople."

"I am delighted to be able to help out Pieta by raffling off my chain that has taken on a following of its own since Normal People hit television screens," Paul adds. "Pieta is a cause very close to my heart, having experienced loss due to suicide in my local town while growing up... I want to play my part in helping sustain these free services across Ireland."

The raffle began on Monday (May 25) and runs until 8 June.
