On Tuesday June 5th Family Carers Ireland with the support of Brendan O’ Connor and our sponsors CarePlus Pharmacies launched our ‘Shine a Light’ campaign. Thursday 21st June this year will be a national day given to raising awareness of family carers in Ireland and at the same time raising much-needed funds. As the 21st is the summer solstice, the longest day of the year, it is an appropriate day to shine a light on the contribution of carers.
Family Carers Ireland will be selling heart-shaped pin for just €2 which will be on sale in our centres throughout the country and in the network of CarePlus Pharmacies and in selected Dunnes Stores outlets. For more information on this campaign please call our Freephone Careline 1800 240724.
