Boots Ireland's Night Walk has raised over €50,000 for the Irish Cancer Society. Over 500 people came together to take part in the two public walks in Dublin and Cork and a further 38 regional walks were organised around the country.
The Irish Cancer Society Night Nurses provide in-home care through the night, for cancer patients requiring end of life care, whilst also providing rest and respite for the patient’s families. The service is provided free of charge and is an invaluable support to families and their loved ones during what can be a particularly difficult and anxious time.
Bernadette Lavery, Managing Director, Boots Ireland says: 'Boots would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to everyone involved in making the 2018 Night Walks so special, your support really matters.
'The Night Nursing service is funded almost entirely by donations, so fundraising initiatives like the Night Walks are vital and make it possible for the Irish Cancer Society to reach people affected by cancer.'
