Bray’s Purple House making its big appeal
PURPLE HOUSE Cancer Support is calling on the public to support their Purple Heart Appeal which runs for the month of February.
The purple heart is a symbol of support for anyone affected by cancer.
Purple House is to the forefront in providing a range of cancer support services to both children and adults, through the work of their cancer support centre in Bray, Co. Wicklow, and outreach support clinic in Dun Laoghaire.
The highlight of the Appeal is Purple Heart Day, which takes place on Tuesday, February 14.
The public are being asked to buy a Purple Heart pin badge for €2 and wear it for a friend or loved one who is living with cancer, in memory of someone who has passed away, or in support of Purple House.
Volunteers will be selling Purple Heart pin badges in various locationsy, including Bray main street, Dalkey, Dun Laoghaire and in the Frascati Shopping Centre in Blackrock.
During the month of February, Purple House will be releasing a number of videos on their social media pages and website www.purplehouse.ie, which will highlight the impact of a cancer diagnosis on a family. To make a donation of €4, text purple to 50300. On Tuesday, February 14, why not hold a Purple Heart Day in your school, club or workplace? Purple House Cancer Support will supply you with the Purple Heart pin badges, balloons and tee-shirts.
Some events already planned include a Purple Heart Walk up Bray Head, organised by The Ladies Workout Express gym and a Purple Heart Day in Tcoag Ireland.
Various companies are also holding Purple Heart Day events in their workplaces.
