Peter Mark says thanks to healthcare heroes in Cavan

Popular hairdressing chain Peter Mark has donated 4,512 gift bags to nurses and healthcare workers nationwide to say thank you for their continuing efforts on the frontline during the pandemic.

As part of its Healthcare Heroes campaign, Lorraine Cahill, area manager and Caroline Conaty, Senior Stylist (Navan) for Peter Mark recently made a surprise delivery of over 100 gift bags to Cavan General Hospital to thank the hospital team there.

Healthcare Heroes is a nationwide campaign by Peter Mark to show its appreciation for healthcare workers by donating gift bags with hair and beauty products to local hospitals.

The campaign is the brainchild of celebrity stylist Adee Phelan who, at the beginning of lockdown in the UK in March 2020, had an idea that he would like to give something back to the hardworking staff of the NHS.

Following on from the success of the campaign in the UK, Adee teamed up with Peter Mark to bring the campaign to Ireland.

Peter O’Rourke, CEO, Peter Mark said the hairdressing group was keen to get involved and provide support in any way they can. “It has been a challenging year for everyone but in particular the healthcare workers who are working so hard in extremely challenging circumstances. The Healthcare Heroes campaign is our way of showing our appreciation and saying a small thank you to them for everything that they do.”

Lorraine Cahill, area manager, Peter Mark, would like to personally thank all the staff in Cavan General Hospital from the nurses, doctors, physios and carers, for all their care, hard work and kindness shown to all families during this unprecedented time.
