Rosie & Jim have made a donation of €2000 to the Oxfam Ireland 'Get Children Back to School' fundraising initiative. 

Children in Iraq probably want nothing more than to go back to their classrooms and playgrounds too. But as families who fled Mosul when the conflict started slowly start to return, they’re finding their schools destroyed.

Hank, Izzy and Champ - look at them now!

The Irish Guide Dogs we have sponsored have returned to Cork for further assessment and training and they are after getting so big while they have been away! Aside from being adorable these doggies are on a mission to train hard and work to help empower people to move safely and confidently around their communities.

Hank has been selected for the Guide Dog programme and has begun very well.

Izzy is settling in well after an initial stressful period for her after leaving her home but staff at HQ are looking after her well. She is still been evaluated for her suitability for either the Guide or Assistance dog programme.

And Champ has been selected for the Assistance Dog programme and has displayed an excellent temperament for this. He will hopefully come through to work with a family of a child with autism.


The Irish Guide Dogs for the Blind is an amazing charity - please donate if you can!

Congratulations again to Fiona Staunton and her nominated charity Aoibheann's Pink Tie on winning €1000 donation from Rosie & Jim.

Here's Tracey delivering the HUGE cheque!

Aoibheann's Pink Tie

Aoibheann’s Pink Tie “National Children’s Cancer Charity” was set up in 2010 by Mick Rochford and Jimmy Norman after the tragic loss of Jimmy’s daughter Aoibheann to cancer aged just 8 years. During Aoibheann’s year long battle with this dreadful disease, the family found little or no financial or practical support  for children and their families.

Jimmy and his family had a large support network of friends and family but found that many on the ward had virtually no support at all.

When Aoibheann passed away the men wore pink ties at the funeral which was Aoibheann’s favourite colour. The charity was formed in her memory to remedy the lack of support for other children and their families going through treatment.

Update on our gorgeous little hard working Irish Guide Dogs for the Blind.

Aska - what a cutey, she gets first position this week.

April exploring public transport for the first time, it's a crucial experience for her which went well according to her puppy raiser, Sandra.

And Andrew checking out the shops before restrictions were lifted. It was great to have the shopping centre a little quieter than normal for his first visit but business as usual now for him for his next visit!

Well done to the puppy raisers doing such a good job!

Rosie & Jim are very pleased to sponsor training tops for St. Conleths LGFC in the Portarlington area.

LauraLynn– Ireland’s Children’s Hospice are Rosie & Jim, Ballybrittas' nominated charity.

Respite care is the very heart of what they do at LauraLynn.  It is not a luxury, but a necessity for both the caregivers and the sick child. 

Caring for a seriously ill child puts immense physical and emotional strain on the whole family.  Through LauraLynn respite care, families have the opportunity to take a break, while we care for their sick child.  LauraLynn multi-disciplinary team provides children with full medical support, as well as a variety of therapies to enhance their care. 

LauraLynn are able to offer families choices, providing on-going support for as long as they choose.

Providing a nights respite to a child is an invaluable gift to the child and their whole family and Rosie & Jim have donated to support 5 overnight stays for a child.

Some adorable photos of Izzy, who, loves here toys! She, like Champ and Hank, are almost 7 months old now already.

She is very playful, so she can get distracted sometimes, but is still a very diligent little pup and a fast learner.

No one takes a Salary from iCAN – 100% funds by iCAN raised go towards making things better for kids with Arthritis in Ireland!

When Mairead from iCAN got in touch to tell us about the fundraising event they were running last Saturday, we were more than happy to donate boxes of Chicken Goujons to feed the 25/30 Children involved in the Croghan Hill Challenge.

Here's a photo of Mairead with her little daughter Meghan.  Meghan who is 4 has Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis since the age of 22 months.
