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.

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..."

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.

 

Congratulations to St Paul's GAA in their great victory over Ballyroan in the U16 County Final on Saturday!

Well done to the management of Eamonn O'Connell, Sean McLoughlin, David Greene and Dan Lutterel.

Rosie & Jim were delighted to sponsored the half zips for the team!

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.

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.

Family Fun Day - Rosie & Jim Chicken ProductsThe Family Fun Day which takes place in August is a day that we dedicate to our children and their families.

It is a day of fun, laughter and activity where the children who use our service and all their family members are invited to come together on the grounds of LauraLynn – Ireland’s Children’s Hospice, where our staff and dedicated volunteers create a special day for them all. The day includes face painters, bouncy castles, games entertainers, stilt walkers, a marquee tent for activities, a DJ, Build-A-Bear, a first aid tent, a treasure hunt, as well as big BBQ and an ice cream van with spot prizes for all! All of the activities are especially designed and created for the participation of our children, and their families can join in the fun. This special day for our families would cost us over €6,000, but with the in-kind support of many suppliers, this cost is halved.

Rosie & Jim have this year sponsored the cost of this incredible event for us, ensuring the provision of a wonderful day for all the family to enjoy together.

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 and Jim were especially delighted to donate €450 to our very own staff member Tracey who was fundraising for Aoibheann’s Pink Tie charity. Tracey was one of over 2,000 women who set a new world record with the Worlds Largest Skinny Dip event at a secluded beach in Wicklow. With all proceeds going to the National Children’s Cancer Charity it really is a fantastic charity to support.

Tracey also held a fundraiser night and we were more than happy to provide the food for the night which raised €1400.
