The Fuchsia Appeal

The Fuchsia Appeal, which commenced in 2009, is run annually to raise funds for the ONE’s Charitable objects, namely the provision of accommodation and other assistance to ex-service personnel in need.

The main drive of the appeal takes place during the month of July which is the month of the National Day of Remembrance.

The fuchsia was chosen as it is widely grown throughout Ireland and is commonly known as Deora Dé or God’s Tears in the West of Ireland.

The Fuchsia emblem is a fundraising emblem, a badge of remembrance and a symbol to honour those currently serving in the Defence Forces.
