Three night walks for cancer so­ci­ety

Bray People - - NEWS -

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.’
