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.

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

Thanks to Irene of Make-A-Wish for sending on this lovely letter.

Liam, age 7, from Galway, lives with a number of medical conditions including chronic lung disease, a metabolic condition called PKU and has an amputated leg. He wished for his own special garden that combines his two big loves – the outdoors and trains. The garden was specially designed to suit Liam’s needs and includes soft play surfaces, planting and landscape features to stimulate the senses, as well as a beautiful train for Liam to climb into and call his own! Liam’s dream of his own peaceful, accessible garden is now a reality thanks to the commitment and generosity of his friends, neighbours, the local business community and of course sponsorship from Rosie & Jim.

Liam’s Mum, Louise, said, “Liam was in hospital until he was four years old and since coming home he just loves playing outside and visiting his local train station to watch the trains come and go. It is truly amazing to have such a perfect place for Liam to call his own and enjoy. The surfaces are perfect for crawling on and he just loves having his very own train!”

Many thanks again for your sponsorship of Liam and Danielle’s wishes – I can guarantee you that the legacy of both will live on for a long time and bring joy and happiness to the lives of these very special children.

Best wishes,

Irene

Rosie & Jim donate €200 to Our Lady's Hospice & Care Services

We received this lovely letter of thanks from the team...

On behalf of all those who use Our Lady's Hospice & Care Services, their family and friends, I would like to extend our most grateful thanks for your generous donation of €200. Your gift will allow us to continue to help our patients to live the last chapter of their lives to the fullest.

Here at Our Lady's Hospice and Care Services, we provide specialist care to people with a wide range of life limiting conditions, both in our hospice and within their homes. Budget cuts and demands on our services mean that we have never needed the help of the local community more to maintain our services.

This donation will help us to further develop our services and to give high quality specialist palliative care to our patients and their families.

Thank you from all of the team here. Your kindness is truly appreciated.

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.

Rosie & Jim recently sponsored a Gold Classic in aid of There's Something About Mary O. The fundraiser was to help Mary and her family access the best possible cancer treatment not available in Northern Ireland.

Mary is a vibrant member of the Cullyhanna community in Armagh. Both herself and her husband Gerard are great characters and well loved within their local communities. They have regularly fundraised for charitable organisations and therefore their family and friends have set up this non-profit organisation.

In May 2015 Mary was diagnosed on her 42nd birthday with Breast Cancer. Mary remained extremely positive throughout her chemotherapy and surgery, many call her an inspiration! Mary was just returning to normality when again on her next birthday she received the dreaded news that her cancer had spread to her liver. Mary is currently receiving eighteen weeks of full body chemotherapy and long term monoclonal antibody treatment. Unfortunately side effects such as extreme tiredness, mouth ulcers, nausea and hair loss are now taking its toll on Mary and her family.

Mary and Gerard are parents to six children ranging from four up to thirteen years. However they are no strangers to heartache after losing their baby to a congenital heart defect in 2006. Baby Eoin joined the other angels in heaven just after two days old. Throughout all this heartache the couple are hugely positive and are truly inspirational people. They are best friends and have recently celebrated their 21st Wedding Anniversary.

This Young, Vibrant Lady deserves the best of care and treatment to return her to better, if not long term improved health. The fundraising will help to cover costs of alternative remedies and further treatment unavailable locally and not routinely covered by NHS.

Rosie & Jim are delighted to have the opportunity to sponsor such a great cause.
