About Ronald McDonald House Charities

The Ronald McDonald House provides accommodation care and support for 20 families every night while their seriously ill children are inpatient or receiving care in Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital.

The House enables families to stay together so that they can be with their sick child at what is a very traumatic time for them all.

The first,16 bedroom, Ronald McDonald House is situated on the grounds of Our Lady’s Hospital and our smaller 4 bedroom House is directly across the road at St Mary’s Drive.

Many families travel far from home to get treatment for their seriously ill or injured children. Often, it can be a long time to be away from home, or to divide a family. For children facing a serious medical crisis, nothing seems scarier than not having their mum and dad close by for love and support.  Ronald McDonald House program provides a Home for families so they can stay close by their hospitalised child at very little cost.  The House works on the simple idea that nothing else should matter when a family is focused on healing their child – not where they can afford to stay, where they will get their next meal or where they will lay their head at night to rest.

Run down schools, crowded class rooms, lack of resources and virtually no sport are all part and parcel of a young persons life in Tanzania, Africa.

Irish volunteers Aisling Quigley and Anna Moore have set about changing the experiences young people are faced with in everyday life. Their work is delivered via Camps International and the core project is based around improving educational infrastructure at the local primary schools and improving village life as a whole.

The main focus currently is on building a classroom for students with special educational needs. Presently they are learning alongside mainstream classes and they are unable to succeed, as their educational needs are so different.

Desks and furniture making are also a high priority here with more than four students trying to squeeze onto one desk so making plenty for all students to sit comfortably will bring great advantages to their learning.

In Tanzania, structured sports education and inter-schools competition is virtually non-existent due to a lack of resources and time. The main issues are sport and P.E. are not part of the National Curriculum, lack of sports teachers, run-down or non-existent school and community sports pitches and facilities, lack of school sports equipment and student kit and gender inequality. Aisling and Anna will be working on sports development and hope to try and develop an area to facilitate their needs.

As a result of the donation Rosie and Jim, Ballybrittas made Aisling and Anna can now carry out volunteer work in Tanzania, which will make a real difference to communities.

Rosie & Jim are delighted to have paid off the Vets bills of €150 for these little cats who have been rescued by Anabatic Lodge Cat Sanctuary. Well done to everyone at the Cat Sanctuary for the amazing job they do, and thanks to Barbara for letting us know about their plight!

"Thank You  We would like to thank a supporter of Anabatic Lodge, Barbara, for thinking outside of the box and asking a reputable company to help us out a little. Rosie & Jim, based in Dublin, have kindly come on board as sponsors for our recent arrivals...Rosie & Jim! Their vet bill was paid in full yesterday and we are so grateful! Thank you so so much! "

The amazing work the St. Vincent de Paul charity do in our communities is well known. Although on hand to help all year round, Christmas time is especially difficult for those who reach out to SVP for support.
Rosie & Jim were happy to be able to make a donation of €1000 at Christmas and humbled by this lovely letter of thanks sent in reply from the National President.



"...Your kindness and generosity will make such a difference to those in need in your community this Christmas.
You will be there to help them falling into poverty and crises. You will be there to put food on their table. You will be there to heat their homes. You will be there to put presents under the Christmas tree.
You will be there just as they need you.

Thank you with all my heart for your thoughtful donation of €1,000.00 to the Society of St. Vincent de Paul.
A little help at the right time can make all the difference. And your donation today could be just what a family need to help them through this winter..."

Dear Rosie & Jim

Thank you so much for your kind donation of €300 to the Cuisle Cancer Support Centre. Also thank you to Margaret who ran the ladies mini marathon in aid of the centre. Your kindness & generosity are very much appreciated.

The Cuisle Cancer Support Centre is a local charity servicing Laois/Kildare and surrounding counties. It provides a warm, safe and welcoming environment for people diagnosed with cancer and for their families and children affected by it.

The centre provides professional support through counselling, relaxation therapies and workshops helping people through their cancer journey. The aim of the centre is to reduce the distressing impact cancer can have on any family. We offer practical and emotional support. A care programme is tailored to each individual’s needs.

The centre has been built from the proceeds of fundraising events over the past number of years, and it has been your support, and the support of so many that has continued to make the centre a special place for people affected by Cancer. All our services are provided free of charge.

The Centre is operated under a voluntary board of trustees who govern the overall operation of the centre and do not receive any remuneration or expenses.

On behalf of the Board of Directors and the Staff in the Cuisle Cancer Support Centre I would once again thank you for your support.

Specialised Clinical Trolleys - Rosie & Jim Chicken ProductsThese clinical trolleys are used for easy mobility of suction machines and other vital medical equipment. They are made from a type of Perspex which is so easy to keep hygienically clean. As such they also look much nicer and are far less noisy, which means they do not frighten or intimidate our children in the same way as stainless steel trolley’s.

We were very much in need of 4 of these trolley’s to enable our medical team to distribute their treatments as safely and easily as possible, with as little upset to our children as possible.

Rosie & Jim sponsored these 4 trolley’s for us at a cost of €2,300, making a huge difference to the Hazel House unit of LauraLynn – Ireland’s Children’s Hospice.

Kathy - Puppy Raiser

Meet Champ and his puppy raiser, Kathy!

Champ is settling in to lovely Howth and is enjoying being beside the sea, which he loves.

Kathy is going through early socialisation training with Champ at the moment and introducing him slowly to more and more crowded public spaces. She will work continuously with her dedicated puppy raising supervisor now to gauge Champ’s reactions to certain situations and how he is settling in at home with Kathy.

Kathy is an experienced raiser and supporter of Irish Guide Dogs.

Photos of Champ - he's growing fast!

Education & Training for Children’s Healthcare Team

LauraLynn is required to incorporate on-going learning into its service development initiatives, but unfortunately the cost of this is considerable.  Rosie & Jim, Ballybrittas 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.
