More Donations from Volunteering Fundraisers

As the generosity of the local businesses and community was so great during the fundraising efforts for my volunteering in India, it allowed other donations to be made to two other very worthy causes Marymount Hospice and Millstreet Community Hospital. €910 has been donated to both (pictures below).

I shall send updates during my 10 weeks of volunteering. I have received my itinerary for the first four weeks and I shall be teaching a class of 30 kids in Palampur aged between 10 -15 yrs. I will be teaching English, mathematics, general knowledge and sports to them.

Again a massive thank you to everyone who helped out, took part and donated to these volunteering efforts – Celina.

Millstreet Marymount Hospice Fundraiser Progressing Well

Hurricane Darwin which Ireland experienced in early 2014 resulted in at least one very positive outcome here in Millstreet in that the enormous amount of fallen trees inspired two wonderfully community-spirited gentlemen to use the enormous amount of wooden logs as prizes for a Fundraiser in aid of Cork's Marymount Hospice.  Below is a sample of the official ticket.   Already the two  very dedicated men have fundraised at both Cloghoula N.S. Pattern Day and Kilcorney Feis 2014.   The response has been great.   A Committee of some six people holds meetings on a regular basis to coordinate the inspiring project for this praiseworthy cause.   There is also a Millstreet Credit Union Account No. 3789T

We all know loved ones who have been taken care of by Marymount Hospice, either in the hospice or by their home care team. TV3 is running a two part documentary on Marymount, and it’s very moving to see people tell their stories, how it works from the inside, and the level of care they give.

About the documentary (from TV3.ie): The staff and patients of St. Patrick’s Marymount Hospital in Cork city are on the move. 141 years after it first opened its doors, this much loved Cork institution is moving to a new hospital which will be Ireland’s most advanced palliative care facility and a centre of excellence for the Irish hospice movement.
