65 Roses Day 2017 

RRP 0206


65 Roses Day takes place on Thursday April 13th. 

Why 65 Roses?

'65 Roses' is how some children first learn how to say 'Cystic Fibrosis'. The symbol in Ireland for '65 Roses Week' is a purple rose.

What can you do?

To support Cystic Fibrosis National Awareness Week and help people with CF you can: 

1: Text 65Roses to 50300 to donate €2 

(Note: 100% of the cost goes to charity across most network providers. Some providers apply VAT which means a minimum of €1.63 will come to CFI) Service Provider: Like Charity, Helpline 076 680 5278


2: Support the '65 Roses Challenge'

Organise a fundraising event in your area using a '65' theme if possible e.g walk 6.5km, cycle 65km. You can be as creative as you like, remember the sky is the limit!


3: Buy a CF Purple RoseOur CF Ireland volunteers will be out and about in many shopping centres around the country on 65 Roses Day, Thursday April 13th 2017 and they will be selling the CF Ireland Purple Silk Roses. We encourage everyone to buy a Purple Rose and show your support for Cystic Fibrosis Ireland. 

Alternatively, you can buy the purple rose from the CFI Online Shop.
