Specialised Clinical Trolleys - Rosie & Jim Chicken ProductsThese clinical trolleys are used for easy mobility of suction machines and other vital medical equipment. They are made from a type of Perspex which is so easy to keep hygienically clean. As such they also look much nicer and are far less noisy, which means they do not frighten or intimidate our children in the same way as stainless steel trolley’s.

We were very much in need of 4 of these trolley’s to enable our medical team to distribute their treatments as safely and easily as possible, with as little upset to our children as possible.

Rosie & Jim sponsored these 4 trolley’s for us at a cost of €2,300, making a huge difference to the Hazel House unit of LauraLynn – Ireland’s Children’s Hospice.

 

Rosie & Jim - Charity Support - LauraLynnLauraLynn is required to incorporate on-going learning into its service development initiatives, but unfortunately the cost of this is considerable.  Rosie & Jim have supported us this quarter by putting funding towards educational and training resources for our nurses and carers.  Funding for educational books and training for development and up-skilling is crucial to the development of the service and care we provide here. 

Sponsorship of our Annual Report

Each year LauraLynn release an Annual Report, where our members, service users and funders can read about our activities and achievements in the past year while learning about our future objectives. It is an invaluable tool for communicating with all our stakeholders. We are hugely grateful to Rosie & Jim for sponsoring our Annual Report this year.

Rosie & Jim are thrilled to have donated €4,500 to fund a sensory bedroom for a Make-A-Wish child and make a wish come true. A sensory bedroom has made a huge difference to wish child Donal who is living with Sensory Modulation Disorder. His condition means that his nervous system needs intense input and he craves busy, stimulating environments, touches and brings everything to his mouth and has a poor attention span. A multi-sensory room has provided him with a fun and safe atmosphere to explore and develop.

Donal’s mother got in touch to thank us and you for making his wish come true. She said:

“We designed Donal’s room around an area in the hope that the wish would be granted. We are so happy with it as it’s Donal’s own area/pad/den & it’s perfect for him. Donal gets physio each week and it’s also a great spot for this – the padded floor is excellent. Donal enjoys himself, watching his favourite music videos – his smile will tell you more than any words!!! It’s been great seeing Donal quickly learn that this comfy den his. He can shuffle to it from anywhere downstairs and he just has to look up at the projector to tell us that he wants it on. His posture is very good when he’s on his beanbag as his spine is really straight. In fact, it’s one of the very few times that Donal has a relatively straight back.”

"Your support has made a really powerful difference in Donal’s life and for that we are truly grateful. Keep up the good work and thank you from everyone at Make-A-Wish Ireland." says Irene from Make-A-Wish Ireland.
 

We at Rosie & Jim are delighted to announce that our total donations to Irish Charities and Community Groups throughout 2016 came to just over €12,000.

In addition Rosie & Jim also donated more than 2,000 kilos of chicken products to Irish food charities who provide support to the less well off in our communities.

Well done to Niamh McInerney and the girls from the mini company of St. Mary's Secondary School, Mallow, Co. Cork on their wonderful Gluten Free cook book.

Family Fun Day - Rosie & Jim Chicken ProductsThe Family Fun Day which takes place in August is a day that we dedicate to our children and their families.

It is a day of fun, laughter and activity where the children who use our service and all their family members are invited to come together on the grounds of LauraLynn – Ireland’s Children’s Hospice, where our staff and dedicated volunteers create a special day for them all. The day includes face painters, bouncy castles, games entertainers, stilt walkers, a marquee tent for activities, a DJ, Build-A-Bear, a first aid tent, a treasure hunt, as well as big BBQ and an ice cream van with spot prizes for all! All of the activities are especially designed and created for the participation of our children, and their families can join in the fun. This special day for our families would cost us over €6,000, but with the in-kind support of many suppliers, this cost is halved.

Rosie & Jim have this year sponsored the cost of this incredible event for us, ensuring the provision of a wonderful day for all the family to enjoy together.

For the second time, Rosie & Jim have made a donation towards our most critical need… respite care. 

Respite & end-of-life care are the very heart of what we do here at LauraLynn.  With the urgent focus being on funding LauraLynn@HOME, we desperately need to ensure we continue to receive funding to run the hospice and provide care to the families who come and stay with us.  Heartfelt thanks to Rosie & Jim for once again sponsoring respite care and giving this invaluable gift of time and care to our families.  

A number of weeks ago, an employee of ours asked for support for his daughters friend, who is fundraising for the Kolkata school project. Rosie & Jim were delighted to donate chicken products for their fundraiser. It was a fantastic night and the girls raised over €1800!

Below is the lovely letter we received from the girls after their event...

Dear Rosie & Jim,

Thank you very much for your support in our fundraiser event last Saturday, the 3rd of October. Our fundraising efforts were in aid of our Immersion Experience to Kolkata with our school next February, were we will have the opportunity to work with disadvantaged children.
Your generosity is greatly appreciated.

Yours sincerely,

Carolyn McCarthy and Kate Danaher
