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!"

Rosie & Jim are pleased to sponsor the Friends of the Coombe €200 for their fundraising event - 'Clash of the Titans' on Sunday 29th September at The Button Factory, Temple Bar.

The fundraiser is to help raise money for the ongoing campaign to raise €75,000 to purchase the world’s most advanced premature baby clinical simulator to transform the way in which healthcare professionals at the Coombe Women & Infants University Hospital develop and maintain the critical clinical skills needed for when it matters most.

Friends of the Coombe is a registered charity that was established in 1982 to raise funds to assist the development of the Coombe Women & Infants University Hospital. The Hospital’s commitment to a philosophy of care which is family centred is visible in all aspects of its work.
The Coombe Women & Infants University Hospital is one of the largest and most comprehensive providers of women and infant health care in Europe. The hospital cares for up to 10,000 pregnant women every year. Additionally, approximately 1,200 infants are admitted to the Neonatal Intensive Care Centre and over 8,000 adult surgical operations are performed. The hospital provides comprehensive care for women and infants at local, regional and national levels.

There is enormous pressure on resources and, through fundraising alone, supporters have helped the charity purchase a long list of vital equipment which enhances the quality of care provided right across the hospital. And, like all charities, we have to prioritise need and so we work closely with the medical staff to ensure that we focus on the things which cannot be funded from other resources.

Best of luck to Ava Corcoran from, Ballybrittas who is braving taking part in the Jump from the Sky, for AFI 2019 event on 15th June. Ava is doing the skydive on behalf of her cousin Maura to raise money for Ataxia Foundation Ireland.  Maura was diagnosed with Friedreich's Ataxia when she was 12. Ava contacted us looking for support. Rosie replied to Ava...

"Myself and Jimmy are very happy to provide €500.00 toward your sky dive - well done, you are all very brave!! We are sorry Maura has been diagnosed with what I’m sure is a difficult condition, and hope our contribution goes in some way to help with the support needed for this very worthy cause. I had never heard of this condition and, thanks to caring people like you Ava it helps to bring awareness about what this conditions is, and the lack of support for these difficulties that life throws up! We wish Maura all the very best and hope she is doing well!  Best of luck to you Ava with the sky dive, enjoy I’m sure it will be a fantastic experience!

About AFI

Ataxia Foundation Ireland (CLG) a Company Limited by Guarantee.  This New Voluntary National Support Group is for people affected by Friedreich's Ataxia (the most common Genetic Ataxia) and up to 50 other Ataxia's.  The organisation was founded by four people with Ataxia, to form the board of directors and trustees and have recently increased the board to seven,  five with an Ataxia and two non-disabled people and have established a Management Committee made up of members and volunteers, most of who have supported people with Ataxia for many years.

What is Friedreichs Ataxia?

Friedreichs Ataxia is a genetic and progressive disorder of the central nervous system which usually manifests itself in children between the ages of six and sixteen years. However, in some instances the onset for Friedreichs and other Genetic Ataxia’s can be much later. Because of the genetic factor more than one person in a family may be affected. The general symptoms are clumsiness, difficulties with balance, lack of co-ordination and, in time, a slurring of speech. Although there is no specific treatment for any of the known Ataxia’s, fundamental research into its pathogenesis is ongoing worldwide, and there are, in any case, various ways in which the burden on sufferers and their relatives can be lightened.
