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.

Flexmort CuddleCot System - Rosie & Jim Chicken ProductsUnfortunately all of the babies and children who spend time at LauraLynn – Ireland’s Children’s Hospice are life-limited by their conditions. The saddest and most difficult thing our families must face during their time with us is the loss of their little boy or girl. Dealing with the death of a baby is an incredibly difficult time for parents and many bereaved parents wish to spend some time with the baby. The CuddleCot is used to cool deceased babies allowing the family time to spend time with the baby. With this special piece of equipment, families can use our Butterfly Suite, a special room built for families to spend time with their little one after they have passed away, to say goodbye in as comfortable and peaceful a way as possible.

“Having this piece of equipment is a wonderful thing. As painful as it is, it gives parents like me some quality time with their loved one, it certainly did for me.” - Parent

We were honoured to have the opportunity to sponsor a hole at the recent Lynas Charity golf day.

Lynas Charity raised a total of £12000 for the following 3 charities:

Cancer Research
Causeway Coast Compassion
Mae Murray foundation

Well done everyone!

 

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!"

Guide Dogs Puppy - Hank

Meet Hank and his puppy raiser, Bernadette!

Hank is settling in to life in Sandyford with his puppy raiser, Bernadette.

Hank is Bernadette’s 7th puppy she has raised so he is in good hands! He is a bit of a cheeky chappy and a bit of a character, something that Izzy has shown also. Their raisers are finding it hard to be too hard on them. Training for Hank is also going very well at present and presenting to be a very quick learner.

 

 

Photos of Hank - he's growing fast!

Juvenile Arthritis is a disease which occurs when the bodies immune system attacks itself and therefore differs to adult onset Arthritis. There is currently no known cause and no cure.

iCAN is a parent-run network providing support, information and advocating for best care for those affected by Juvenile Arthritis. iCAN is 100% volunteer based and run by parents of children with Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis (JIA). 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.

Check out these recent photos of Hank, our sponsored Guide Dog for the Blind.  He is loving life and befriends most animals he meets. His puppy raiser, Bernadette, says he is doing very well, very intelligent, obedient and diligent to work. He's almost 9 months old now and growing fast. He will remain with his puppy raiser, Bernadette, for around another 3 to 4 months depending on scheduling of training at HQ in Cork.

In December we made a donation of €1000 to the Peter McVerry Trust. Peter McVerry Trust is a charity set up by Fr Peter McVerry to reduce homelessness and the harm caused by drug misuse and social disadvantage.

Thanks to Pat Doyle, CEO of Peter McVerry Trust who sent us a lovely letter in reply.

" On behalf of Peter McVerry Trust, I would like to sincerely thank Rosie and Jim for the generous donation of €1000 which was received with sincere thanks in my office.
The goal of Peter McVerry Trust is to reduce homelessness, drug misuse and social disadvantage. In 2015, we supported 4,705 individuals through our prevention services, homeless services, housing services, drug treatment services and under 18s residential services.

There's no doubt that the need of homeless people is great, but your generosity makes it possible for us to continue our work and to move as many individuals as we can out of homelessness.

Thank you again for this generous contribution..."

ArtoHuntleigh Maxislide Sheets and Tubes - Rosie & Jim Chicken ProductsRosie & Jim recently sponsored new maxislide sheets and tubes for the children in LauraLynn – Ireland’s Children’s Hospice. This flat sheet sliding system is essential to allow our carers to perform a wide range of handling manoeuvres for our children, simply and safely, removing risk of injury to both the child and the carer.

We needed a large selection of these in different shapes and sizes to enable safe manoeuvring of all our children.

Rosie & Jim sponsored the full order!

We are delighted to donate €1,000 in support of Midlands Simon Community’s annual Sleep Out to raise funds for homelessness in the midlands.

Midlands Simon was established to support individuals, couples and families who are experiencing or who are at risk of homelessness throughout the Midlands Counties of Laois, Longford, Offaly and Westmeath.

Tonight, in Mullingar, Portlaoise and Tullamore, hundreds of volunteers will come together and Sleep Out for the Midlands Simon Community.

You can donate to tonights sleep out here - http://gateway.midlandssimon.com/donate.php

And keep in touch with them on their Facebook page - facebook.com/pg/MidlandsSimonCommunity
