Three night walks for cancer society
THERE will be three night walks in Wicklow this month in aid of the Irish Cancer Society.
The Boots Night Walks will take place in Greystones, Bray and Arklow during the month of August to raise funds for the Irish Cancer Society.
The Wicklow Night Walks will take place in Greystones on Tuesday, August 15, in Bray on Wednesday, August 16 and in Arklow on Wednesday, August 23.
Cancer survivor and ambassador for the Boots Night Walks Louise McSharry is encouraging people across Ireland to help Boots raise much needed funds for the Irish Cancer Society’s Night Nursing Service. This wonderful service offers free end of life care to cancer patients across Ireland allowing them to remain in their own homes, surrounded by family and friends during what can be a difficult and anxious time in their lives.
To help Boots raise the much needed funds for the Night Nursing service, Boots will have Honour Tags on sale in Boots stores nationwide for €2. Customers can purchase a tag in honour of someone who has survived or passed away from cancer. One metre will be walked in honour of that person and the tags are brought from each store across Ireland to their local night walk. The front of the tag allows for the name of the individual with space on the back for a personal message.
Louise McSharry said: ‘The Irish Cancer Society provides vital services for people living with cancer, and without support from companies like Boots and people around Ireland they simply would not be able to continue.’
