Rosie & Jim are pleased to sponsor the Friends of the Coombe €200 for their fundraising event - 'Clash of the Titans' on Sunday 29th September at The Button Factory, Temple Bar.
The fundraiser is to help raise money for the ongoing campaign to raise €75,000 to purchase the world’s most advanced premature baby clinical simulator to transform the way in which healthcare professionals at the Coombe Women & Infants University Hospital develop and maintain the critical clinical skills needed for when it matters most.
Friends of the Coombe is a registered charity that was established in 1982 to raise funds to assist the development of the Coombe Women & Infants University Hospital. The Hospital’s commitment to a philosophy of care which is family centred is visible in all aspects of its work.
The Coombe Women & Infants University Hospital is one of the largest and most comprehensive providers of women and infant health care in Europe. The hospital cares for up to 10,000 pregnant women every year. Additionally, approximately 1,200 infants are admitted to the Neonatal Intensive Care Centre and over 8,000 adult surgical operations are performed. The hospital provides comprehensive care for women and infants at local, regional and national levels.
There is enormous pressure on resources and, through fundraising alone, supporters have helped the charity purchase a long list of vital equipment which enhances the quality of care provided right across the hospital. And, like all charities, we have to prioritise need and so we work closely with the medical staff to ensure that we focus on the things which cannot be funded from other resources.
