The Fuchsia Appeal runs annually to raise funds for ONE’s charitable endeavours, namely the provision of accommodation and other assistance to ex-service personnel in need.
The following is a LINK to an article on ONE Homes in the digital edition of the Irish Times.
Although the main drive of the appeal takes place during the month of July, which is the month of the National Day of Commemoration, donations are welcome at any time and may be made at www.oneconnect.ie
The Fuchsia was chosen as a symbol as it is widely grown throughout Ireland and is commonly known as Deora Dé or God’s Tears in the West of Ireland. It is also a fundraising emblem, a badge of remembrance and a symbol of honour to those currently serving in the Defence Forces.
