Rosie & Jim are humbled and thrilled to Make-A-Wish come true for Liam.

Thanks to Irene of Make-A-Wish for sending on this lovely letter.

Liam, age 7, from Galway, lives with a number of medical conditions including chronic lung disease, a metabolic condition called PKU and has an amputated leg. He wished for his own special garden that combines his two big loves – the outdoors and trains. The garden was specially designed to suit Liam’s needs and includes soft play surfaces, planting and landscape features to stimulate the senses, as well as a beautiful train for Liam to climb into and call his own! Liam’s dream of his own peaceful, accessible garden is now a reality thanks to the commitment and generosity of his friends, neighbours, the local business community and of course sponsorship from Rosie & Jim.

Liam’s Mum, Louise, said, “Liam was in hospital until he was four years old and since coming home he just loves playing outside and visiting his local train station to watch the trains come and go. It is truly amazing to have such a perfect place for Liam to call his own and enjoy. The surfaces are perfect for crawling on and he just loves having his very own train!”

Many thanks again for your sponsorship of Liam and Danielle’s wishes – I can guarantee you that the legacy of both will live on for a long time and bring joy and happiness to the lives of these very special children.

Best wishes,

Irene

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 donate €200 to Our Lady's Hospice & Care Services

We received this lovely letter of thanks from the team...

On behalf of all those who use Our Lady's Hospice & Care Services, their family and friends, I would like to extend our most grateful thanks for your generous donation of €200. Your gift will allow us to continue to help our patients to live the last chapter of their lives to the fullest.

Here at Our Lady's Hospice and Care Services, we provide specialist care to people with a wide range of life limiting conditions, both in our hospice and within their homes. Budget cuts and demands on our services mean that we have never needed the help of the local community more to maintain our services.

This donation will help us to further develop our services and to give high quality specialist palliative care to our patients and their families.

Thank you from all of the team here. Your kindness is truly appreciated.

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.
