The annual Purple Heart Appeal for Purple House Cancer Support is taking place at various locations on St. Valentine’s week.
Members of the public can pick up a Purple Heart or Caring Bear from our volunteers across Leinster and locally on Bray Main Street on Wednesday 13th February and also from various shops on Thursday 14th including Tesco Bray, Tesco Express Bray & SuperValu Bray.
Our Purple Heart is a sign of support for anyone who is affected by Cancer and we are asking people to wear their Purple Heart for:
- for a friend or loved one who is living with Cancer.
- in memory of someone who has passed away.
- in support of Purple House, who are supporting families & individuals affected by Cancer through the work of their Cancer Support Centre and services.
Funds raised from this year’s Appeal will fund the Purple House Play Therapy and Counselling Service for Children living with Cancer.
Purple House would like to thank the many schools, businesses and shops who are holding Purple Heart Appeal events during February, as well as many individuals who are holding coffee mornings.
Purple House Cancer Support Centre is open daily on Parnell Road in Bray and provides a range of services including Counselling, Cancer Survivorship Programmes, Bereavement Counselling, hospital transport and a range of practical services for both adults and children.
The organisation also provides outreach services in Dun Laoghaire and further afield.
