Boots in Ireland has been a long term partner of the Irish Cancer Society. Over the 6 years of the partnership, they have raised over €1.3 million (3,800 nights) for the night nursing service which provides end of life care for cancer patients.

Every August, Boots colleagues take part in 5km walks around Ireland to raise funds for the Irish Cancer Society Night Nursing Service.

This year they're asking customers to join in. There are two walks open to the public taking place at 7.30pm on Friday, August 17 in Dublin (Marlay Park) and in Cork (Páirc Uí Chaoimh Stadium)

You can register for the Dublin event @ http://bit.ly/2KBIWeZ or the Cork event @ http://bit.ly/2M5Zzo3

You can also help support by purchasing a Night Walk tag at €2 in any of our stores in honour of someone who has been affected by cancer. The Night Walk tags will then be displayed at the respective walk. Alternatively you can donate via http://bit.ly/2KDRySB.

Being diagnosed with cancer can be one of the most difficult situations a person will face in their lifetime.

All of our Survivor Support volunteers have had a cancer diagnosis. To contact a survivor, call our Cancer Nurseline Freephone on 1800 200 700. http://bit.ly/2Kmkr5y
