Mary O’Brien’s birthday fundraiser

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
I’ve this chosen this because my late husband Pat had leukaemia and this had an enormous impact on oùr family.Sadly Pat passed away in 2011 and this year will be the 10th anniversary of his passing and I hope that you’ll consider contributing as a way of celebrating with me. Every little bit will help me reach my goal. I’ve included information about The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society below.
The LLS mission: Cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families. LLS funds lifesaving blood cancer research around the world, provides free information and support services, and is the voice for all blood cancer patients seeking access to quality, affordable, coordinated care.
100% of your donation goes directly to the charity.

In memory of our father John Linehan

In memory of our father John Linehan, we have decided to run a GoFundMe, in aid of the CUH Oncology Ambulatory Centre and Marymount Hospice. The majority of the funds will go to the Ambulatory Centre in CUH. This service is absolutely vital, because cancer patients are so immunosuppressed, in many emergency situations it’s too risky to enter A&E. The Oncology Ambulatory Centre provides a dedicated A&E clinic specifically for cancer patients, thereby saving countless lives, purely by saving the patients from the huge infection risk of a normal A&E. It is vital that this service is funded, but as of right now, it is severely underfunded, and only able to function from 9-5 Monday to Friday. This service helped Dad countless times, and saved his life when regular A&E wouldn’t have been able to. In his memory, we are determined to help fund this unit, because if it can provide any patient the care it provided our dad, it is genuinely priceless.

St Vincent de Paul Annual Appeal

Every facet of life has been severely affected by the Covid 19 virus.  Political, economical, social, sporting and religious activities have all been compromised. Sadly, people have lost their lives, thousands more have fallen ill, lost their jobs and despite Covid payments, have found their livelihoods threatened. The St.Vincent De Paul Society acknowledges the great trauma many have suffered as a consequence.
While continuing to help those most in need, the Society too has seen it’s income diminish by as much as 70%.  St. Patrick’s here in Millstreet depends for most of it’s donations from the Annual Christmas Appeal at the church gate.  Unfortunately, this will not be held this year.  However should you wish to donate, you may do so by using the self addressed envelopes that can be found in the churches at Kilcorney,  Millstreet,  Ballydaly, Cullen, Derrinagree & Dromagh or you can personally hand in a donation to the presbytery in Millstreet and Dromtariffe.
St. Patrick’s Conference sincerely thanks all those who have already donated.
To anyone who requires our assistance or indeed if you know of someone who may be in need, please contact us at 087 9597950.
The Conference would like to wish each and everyone a Safe, Peaceful and a Happy Christmas and we pray that the New Year will bring an end to what has been a turbulent and disturbing time.
A Christmas thought..

The Jack & Jill Children’s Foundation

Cynthia Daly and friends are asking you to support “UptheHill20, to give a push up that fundraising hill for Jack & Jill whose fundraising calendar has been severely flattened due to Covid 19.  By donating as little as €16.00, you are very kindly funding the cost of 1 hour of home nursing care for a sick child and bridging the €250,000 funding gap which the charity is currently experiencing.

Jack & Jill foundation is a national charity providing vital home nursing and end of life support to 362 children across Ireland who have complex medical and life- threatening conditions. Despite Covid- 19, the charities services marches on, as the nursing teams keep going just like the families they support.

Witnessing at first hand the vital support the charity provides in the home nursing care of her niece Olivia, who suffers from a rare genetic disorder, Cynthia is climbing Cardiac Hill in an effort to say thank you and enable the charity to continue providing the service and support to many families who find themselves in a very challenging place. For these families, their Jack & Jill nurses are their backbone and life line.  The charity enables families and carers to do normal day to day things, knowing their child is in professional care.

You too can climb a hill for those that can’t, show your solidarity and ask your friends to support you.   You may donate www.justgiving.com/fundraising/Cynthia-Daly, to account IE90KIR099219301063740, or by placing a donation in one of our collection boxes.
