Take your health in good hands
Wear Something Red ... on Saturday, February 8th and support The Irish Heart Foundation.
As Valentine’s Day approaches and hearts will be all over the place the traders of the Nenagh Indoor Market are organising a coffee morning social event in aid of the Irish Heart Foundation on Saturday, 8th of February.
The market and the traders will go red for the day and are inviting you and your family and friends to join them between 10am and 3pm and enjoy a nice cup of tea or coffee and sample some of the products on offer.
There will be music and face painting, lots of balloons and a great friendly atmosphere. The purpose of the event is to increase awareness and fund raise in a sociable and fun way, so put on your red hat or scarf or whatever you have and come along and enjoy the event.
Nenagh Indoor Market is located beside the Creamery and opposite the gates of the Nenagh Mart , look out for the flags and balloons, there is also plenty of free parking around the market area.
Besides the fun there will be an awareness message behind the event …you may not realise but cardiovascular disease is the number one cause of death in this country. Every day in Ireland 26 people die from heart attack, stroke and other blood vessel disease. But there is hope. The good news is that many deaths can be prevented with greater awareness of heart attack and stroke symptoms, healthier lifestyle behaviour, groundbreaking research and with greater CPR education across the population. The Irish Heart Foundation relies on donationsand fund raising activities to deliver programmes in each of these areas and in addition, provides vital support and information to patients and their families affected by heart and stroke-related illnesses.
