Branch work is made possible through fundraising and the branch would like to extend a word of gratitude to each and every one of its supporters and especially to the loyal Church gate collectors and their helpers.
Thank you from Mayo/Roscommon Hospice!
Mayo/Roscommon Hospice express grateful thanks to all the volunteers and hospice support groups who gave their time to help with their fundraising appeal on National Sunflower days for hospice last weekend. Their kindness and willingness to help is most appreciated.
The success of the event depends entirely on the support of the public through the volunteer and hospice groups and especially to those who gave so generously to the cause. Hospice also appreciates the kind co-operation of local stores, shops, etc. who allow the foundation to avail of their premises for the event.
Sunflower Days is one of the foundation’s biggest fundraisers and the support from volunteers and support groups in the community is vital to help them continue to provide local hospice palliative care services free of charge to those in the community living with life-limiting illness.
With the continued support from the public, two hospice buildings in the region will become a reality in the very near future. It could not be done without the public’s support.
