About Aoibheann’s Pink Tie
Aoibheann’s Pink Tie was set up in 2010 after Jimmy Norman’s daughter, Aoibheann, passed away. During their long battle with cancer, Jimmy met with a lot of parents going through the trauma of having a child with cancer, and more specifically identified with the financial burden that inevitably follows diagnosis. They are registered with the Irish Cancer Society and affiliated with St. John’s Oncology Ward in Crumlin Hospital. Olympic gold medal champion Katie Taylor is their charity ambassador.
So what does Aoibheann’s Pink Tie do? They provide financial and practical help to those families in need of it. This will hopefully allow the families the ability to focus on their child and working through their illness. Families are often lost in the mix when their children go through this battle, but it’s not just the child that gets cancer, it’s the whole family as each is affected and must struggle.
Aoibheann’s Pink Tie raise funds through various events and fundraisers and use this to support families who are recommended to by the senior social worker in St. John’s Ward Crumlin Hospital.
Rosie & Jim are pleased to donate £100 to Eamon McCay, Managing Director of Frylite, one of our suppliers, as he marks World Homeless Day by sleeping out overnight in Strabane .
Mr McCay writes...
...on Saturday 13th October, I'm marking World Homeless Day by sleeping out overnight in Strabane. By doing this, I hope to raise awareness of homelessness and much needed funds for our chosen charities throughout Ireland.
Almost 10,000 people described themselves as homeless in Ireland this year. That includes men, women, couples and families. These are staggering figures, but the most important message is that we can all help.
You don't have to sleep out to help. €15 feeds a whole family for 2 days. £50 helps parents to learn new skills that will help them work their way out of homelessness while meeting their children's needs.
£100 helps keep families safe and warm during the cold winter months when the heating needs to be turned up for babies and children.
Best of luck to all taking part in this fundraising event.
You can donate to this most dererving cause by visiting the Frylite GoFundMe Page at www.gofundme.com/frylite-celebrating-30years.
We are delighted to announce that our total donations to Irish Charities and Community Groups throughout 2015 came to just over €15,000.

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.

We were delighted to donate €200 to the Ennis Sub Aqua Club for their annual St Stephen's Day fin swim in the River Fergus, Ennis.
Well done to all involved in this great cause - we hope the water wasn't too cold!
Read the lovely letter from Ennis Sub Aqua Club below.
Dear Rosie & Jim
On behalf of Ennis Sub Aqua Club Search & Recovery, please allow me to extend our thanks for your generous contribution of €200 to support our annual St. Stephens Day fin swim in the River Fergus, Ennis.
Ennis Sub Aqua Club Volunteers provide underwater Search and Recovery services throughout the county of Clare and provide assistance further afield if needed. We are the official team called out by Clare Civil Defence for inland searches and one of a small number of teams assisting the Coast Guard for searches on and around the coastline. Unfortunately our services are frequently in demand. This can be a very traumatic time for friends and family.
Your generousity will allow us to enable more divers to be trained to assist in this service over the coming year.
Rosie & Jim are very pleased to sponsor training tops for St. Conleths LGFC in the Portarlington area.
The U16 team are in the B Championship Final against Ballyfin on Friday at 6.30pm!
Best of luck ladies! Hope the tops bring you as much luck as they brought the Courtwood GAA team ;-)

About Newry Helping The Homeless
This group has been formed to highlight the plight of the homeless, not just in Newry but on the island of Ireland as a whole. Reading about the death of ordinary people living on the streets of Belfast has hit home to many of us. " How can this be allowed to happen in this day and age?". Well we want to try and do a little to help with this problem not just in Newry but in other areas too...
