Purple House Cancer Support Centre has opened a call for people to take part in two European challenges planned for 2022 to fundraise for the local service.
The Camino trek is expected to take place from May 15 to 22. It will include a fully guided trek over six days from Sarria to Santiago de Compostela. The trek will be under the guidance of Camino experts 'Follow The Camino'.
Meanwhile, the Bray to Paris Cycle is scheduled to take place between June 15 and June 20. This event is set to include five days of cycling under the guidance of Irish Cycling Safaris from Purple House in Bray to the Eiffel Tower in Paris.
Funds raised from both events will go towards the Bray-based cancer support service which helps families impacted by cancer by providing counselling, hospital transport, art therapy for children, bereavement support services and cancer survivorship programmes at Purple House in Bray. Virtual cancer support services are also provided to people across Ireland.
