These Boots are made for night walking: Irish Cancer Society fundraiser to take place in Kilkenny on September 7
Calling all Kilkenny’s strollers … this year’s Night Walk in aid of the Irish Cancer Society Night Nurses will take place on September 7.
Previously Night Walks have taken place in various locations across the country and participants walked together to raise funds for this important service.
This year, due to Covid-19 social distancing guidelines and to ensure everyone’s safety, things are a little different.
Sponsored by Boots, the 5km walk will take place on Monday September 7 at a location and time of your choice.
Alongside the walk, Honour Tags are now 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.
The front of the tag allows for the name of the individual with space on the back for a personal message.
“Having been through cancer, I know how challenging it can be for both the patient and their loved ones,” Ambassador Sile Seoige (pictured) said.
“Support services like the Irish Cancer Society’s Night Nurses are vital. These incredible people bring such kindness to the homes of those who need it most.
“They sit through the night with the patient and are a reassuring presence for all the family. I am proud to support Boots Ireland and the Irish Cancer Society for this campaign and invite everyone to fundraise and get out and walk on 7th September 2020 in aid of this wonderful service.”
