Take part in this year’s Boots Night Walk in support of the Irish Cancer Society Night Nurses

Boots Ireland is proud to announce this year’s Night Walk in aid of the Irish Cancer Society Night Nurses. Previously we’ve met in various locations across the country and walked together to raise funds for this important service which provides end of life care for cancer patients in their own home. Due to COVID-19 social distancing guidelines and to keep you safe, this year we are doing things a little differently. Our Night Walk will take place on Monday 7th September - you choose the time and location and we’ll walk together from afar!

Donate what you can here or set up your own fundraising page and start raising money for this great cause.

Funds Raised

Alongside the walk, Honour Tags will be 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. One metre will be walked in honour of that person by members of the Boots Ireland team on September 7th. 

Boots Ireland has been a proud supporter of the Irish Cancer Society since 2012 and has raised over €1.8 million to date equating to over 5,300 nights of care.

All funds raised from the Night Walk will go towards the Irish Cancer Society Night Nursing service which provides end of life care for cancer patients, allowing them to pass away at home surrounded by family and loved ones as well as giving much needed respite for the family caring for them.

If you’re joining us on the 5km Boots Night Walk on September 7th, make sure to tag us in your social media posts and use #BootsNightWalk20.
