Irish Cancer Society appeals for online donations 13.10.20

THE Irish Cancer Society are appealing for online donations after their Pink Ribbon sales in Inishowen, which raise funds for services for people affected by breast cancer, have been cancelled due to Covid-19 restrictions.
Each year, dedicated fundraisers look forward to doing their bit in the local community, bringing some colour to the streets in support of services and research for breast cancer services and it’s disappointing for everyone that this won’t be happening this year, but you can still help.
Brendan Duffy from Buncrana, a Pink Ribbon volunteer for the Irish Cancer Society, said: “Every year, we come together to sell Pink Ribbons to support breast cancer patients. The support in is always amazing, everyone is so generous. We are so disappointed to not be out on the streets this year, but we want to encourage everyone to please show their support breast cancer patients by donating online at www.cancer.ie  to get their digital Pink Ribbon this year."
Rosemary Simmons, National Fundraising Lead at the Irish Cancer Society, added: "Unfortunately due to Covid-19 restrictions, we have had to cancel our street sales across Donegal this year. We are asking members of the public to show their support by donating to the Irish Cancer Society online at www.cancer.ie/donate or call 1850 60 60 60."
