News | Rosie & Jim - Irish Produced Chicken
Loading...

Being from near Stradbally in Co. Laois, Rosie & I know and love the festival that has become Ireland biggest arts and music festival. Electric Picnic is a fantastic fun weekend with top acts from around the world. It sells out very quickly every year. So with that in mind Rosie decided to get in early and purchase two tickets for one lucky winner. We ran a competition on Facebook which Reached over 40,000 people. That's about as many as go to the festival! We chose a random winner from the huge number of entrants and Rebecca Small aka Becky Beag, was our lucky winner.

"Thanks so much again- still can't believe I won them!  I love yer chicken goujons :)) "

Congratulations Becky! We know you will enjoy!

Make-A-Wish® Ireland has one simple aim - to grant the wishes of children aged between 3 and 17 years living with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy. A wish granted is true magic for the child, providing respite from their normal routines of hospitals, doctors and treatment. Since inception in 1992 they have granted over 2,000 wishes in Ireland. They believe a wish can have a lasting impact on a child's life. A wish can create moments of joy - and memories that last a life-time.

Rosie & Jim have donated €500 to the Make-A-Wish® Ireland Christmas Campaign.

The student in Dublin City University, have set up a new society this year. The DCU Irish Heart Society. This is a charity run society working with the Irish Heart Society. It is run by students. 

They have regular events, fundraisers etc.  Last year they raised over €600 euro for the Irish Heart Foundation. They  promote healthy lifestyle and run first aid courses for our members. 

Rosie & Jim have donated €100 to DCU Irish Heart Society.

Rosie and Jim were especially delighted to donate €450 to our very own staff member Tracey who was fundraising for Aoibheann’s Pink Tie charity. Tracey was one of over 2,000 women who set a new world record with the Worlds Largest Skinny Dip event at a secluded beach in Wicklow. With all proceeds going to the National Children’s Cancer Charity it really is a fantastic charity to support.

Tracey also held a fundraiser night and we were more than happy to provide the food for the night which raised €1400.

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

Make A Wish - Cabin for Danielle
Make A Wish - Cabin for Danielle

Danielle, aged 4, from Sligo, is living with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia. She loves playing and really wanted a playhouse for her and her siblings/friends to play in. She specifically said green because she likes the idea of a green playhouse in the garden. Her favourite colour is pink and she loves dancing and singing. She can’t really travel and shares a room with her sister so having a space of her own is what this wish is all about.

"Thanks to the generosity of Rosie & Jim, Make-A-Wish were able to get her an amazing and spacious Summerhouse and include fantastic interior furnishings to turn it into a cosy, multi-functional space. On the day of the reveal, Danielle’s mum, with the help of our amazing volunteers Martina and John, threw a party for Danielle and the whole family, where everyone got to have a go at the Karaoke machine and some arts and crafts! Thanks again for your support, as you can see you have made a little girl extremely happy!"

About Ronald McDonald House Charities

The Ronald McDonald House provides accommodation care and support for 20 families every night while their seriously ill children are inpatient or receiving care in Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital.

The House enables families to stay together so that they can be with their sick child at what is a very traumatic time for them all.

The first,16 bedroom, Ronald McDonald House is situated on the grounds of Our Lady’s Hospital and our smaller 4 bedroom House is directly across the road at St Mary’s Drive.

Many families travel far from home to get treatment for their seriously ill or injured children. Often, it can be a long time to be away from home, or to divide a family. For children facing a serious medical crisis, nothing seems scarier than not having their mum and dad close by for love and support.  Ronald McDonald House program provides a Home for families so they can stay close by their hospitalised child at very little cost.  The House works on the simple idea that nothing else should matter when a family is focused on healing their child – not where they can afford to stay, where they will get their next meal or where they will lay their head at night to rest.
