Boots Ireland announced that they will partner with the Irish Cancer Society as their new Charity of the Year for 2012/13. The aim of the partnership is to support people living with cancer in Ireland and to increase awareness, promote prevention and raise vital funds to support the Irish Cancer Society Nursing Services.
To mark the launch of the partnership, Boots Ireland employees and customers from Mayo are participating in a series of Boots Night Walks for Night Nurses which are taking place across the country on August 29.
There are three Boots stores in Mayo – located in Westport, Ballina and Castlebar. Those wishing to take part are advised to contact their local store for details. All money raised will be invested in the Night Nurse Service that is provided free of charge by the Irish Cancer Society to cancer patients in their home.
