Tullamore Gardai to support 'Go Purple Day' with bike relay

Tullamore Gardai in association with Offaly Domestic Violence Support Services are holding an information stand in the Bridge Centre Tullamore from 11am this Friday, May 3, to coincide with 'Go Purple Day.'

As part of their domestic violence awareness campaign they will also be hosting a bike relay to raise funds for vital support services for the victims of domestic violence in Offaly, and all support on the day will be greatly appreciated..

'Go Purple Day' is An Garda Síochána's national domestic abuse awareness campaign which consolidates community partnerships between domestic abuse support services and Gardaí.

The national campaign is the brainchild of Garda Stacey Looby, who is native of Banagher in county Offaly, and is stationed in Athlone. Garda Looby started the successful fundraiser in 2020, and from humble beginnings it has now been rolled out right across the country.
