Londis retailers, and their staff, will be humming the song made famous by Nancy Sinatra – these boots are made for walking – for the month of February as they take part in the LauraLynn 280,000 steps challenge.
In total, more than 500 Londis retailers, their families and staff from 42 stores, across 15 counties in Ireland have signed up to raise much needed funds for LauraLynn Ireland’s Children’s Hospice. Even modest calculations Londis retailers and their teams will circumnavigate the globe twice by the end of February.
LauraLynn is the only specialist hospice in Ireland to care for children with life-limiting conditions and their families. The children’s hospice provides palliative and end-of-life care to children with life-limiting conditions and gives respite and support to their families – at the hospice, in the community and in their own homes. The hospice also provides psychological support and counselling, residential family camps, a bereavement programme, music therapies and holistic therapies to the families.
Londis announced that LauraLynn Ireland’s Children’s Hospice will be its new national charity partner for the next two years in December and this is the first of many fundraising initiatives Londis retailers will be engaging in for the charity.
