Sligo Heart to Heart Luncheon

This February it’s time to Go Red for an inaugural ‘Heart to Heart Charity Luncheon’ at the Radisson Sligo on February 9th in aid of the Irish Heart Foundation.

It is anticipated the Heart to Heart Luncheon will become an annual fixture in the Irish Heart Foundation’s calendar with net proceeds from the luncheon going to the Irish Heart Foundation to support research, advocacy, education and provision of services in the continuing fight against heart disease and stroke, specifically the Stroke Support Group based in Sligo.

An event not to be missed – the keynote speaker is the inspirational Padraic Cuffe of the IT Sligo – a stroke survivor and member of the local Stroke Support Group.

Clare Ronan of Ocean FM will serve as the Master of Ceremonies, while Dr Paula Hickey will speak about the impact of the Irish Heart Foundation in the Sligo community

Dr Paula Hickey of Sligo University Hospital says: “In Ireland we are ageing successfully – more and more of us leading healthy active lives when middle-aged or retired. However along with the growing number of older people in our society, we are witnessing a rise in the numbers suffering stroke – the major cause of disability in adults in this country.

"We are grateful to the Irish Heart Foundation for supporting stroke survivors in Sligo"
