The Peter Mark team in Mullingar and Athlone are once again grabbing their ghds, plugging in their hairdryers, and manning their styling stations in a bid to raise much-needed funds to help the Irish Hospice Foundation.
The Petermarkathon fundraiser takes place this year over the October bank holiday weekend, October 25-28, at all Peter Mark salons.
Teams from Peter Mark Mullingar and Athlone have organised a whole host of activities including cake sales, denim day, and raffles throughout the bank holiday weekend to help raise funds.
Speaking about the Petermarkathon, Sharon Foley, CEO of the Irish Hospice Foundation, said, “We are absolutely delighted to have been chosen as the charity partner for the Petermarkathon.
“Support from companies like Peter Mark is hugely important to us. The IHF receives no core State funding so we rely on public support to raise the €5m required to fund our work each year. All the money raised over the October bank holiday will go towards our Nurses for Night Care service, which enables people with illnesses other than cancer to fulfil their wish to die at home.
“I would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to all the staff of Peter Mark and wish them every success for the Petermarkathon. Obviously none of this could happen without the support of the public so we would like to say a big thank you for all their support in helping the Irish Hospice Foundation make better end-of-life care, everywhere, a reality across Ireland.”
