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.

Izzy - Guide Dog for the Blind - Glendalough September 2019

Izzy is in great form and was on a spot of sightseeing locally last weekend in Glendalough.

Emma, her puppy raiser, is delighted with progress to date as their time together shortens.

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.

Rosie & Jim are really pleased to share they have donated over €5,000 to the wonderful Make A Wish Irish charity.

Rosie presented the cheque for €5,095 to Susan O’Dwyer of Make A Wish last week.

Make-A-Wish Ireland has one simple aim – to grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions, to bring hope, strength and happiness.

Rosie & Jim are delighted to donate €300 to the Wild Atlantic Wains ChildrenHelpingChildren Concert. The concert is a fundraiser for A Better Life for Livie Fund.

Find out more about Livie and the many fundraising events here: https://www.abetterlifeforlivie.ie/

Also check out A better life for Livie on Facebook and all the social platforms. She needs as many heroes as possible to save her. Imagine if just 1 euro per view went to the fund, we could really make a difference.

 

Who Is Livie ?

Olivia Mulhern is an 8 month old baby recently diagnosed with Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA) Type 1. Without treatment her condition will deteriorate and it will be unlikely she could survive past her second birthday.

What Is SMA ?

Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA) is caused by a gene deletion that causes deterioration of the nerve cells connecting Livies' brain and spinal cord to her muscles. There is no cure and Livie has the most severe type.

Donate now

Livies best hope is a one off gene treatment, currently only available in America and costing a staggering two million dollars. Livie is against the clock as this treatment is only available to children under two years old.

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!

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.
