Text CORD for spinal charity

by Gazette Reporter

Spinal Injuries Ireland (SII) is to hold its national campaign day, Colour Me Friday this week, with volunteers wearing green and hosting fundraising events across the country tomorrow and Saturday.

The public can donate €4 to SII by texting ‘CORD’ to 50300.

There will be events all over Dublin with volunteers at B&Q Liffey Valley Retail Park on Friday from 9-7pm and in Liffey Valley Shopping Centre on Saturday from 9-7pm.

Currently, there are 483 people living in Dublin with spinal cord injuries, with this number rising annually.

Fiona Bolger, CEO at SII said: “The funds raised from Colour Me Friday will go towards SII’s Community Outreach Programme which provides support and information to people living with a spinal cord injury and their families. We would like everyone from Dublin to get behind our collection and support people living with a spinal cord injury in the county.”
