The student in Dublin City University, have set up a new society this year. The DCU Irish Heart Society. This is a charity run society working with the Irish Heart Society. It is run by students. 

They have regular events, fundraisers etc.  Last year they raised over €600 euro for the Irish Heart Foundation. They  promote healthy lifestyle and run first aid courses for our members. 

Rosie & Jim have donated €100 to DCU Irish Heart Society.

We're so proud of April - our gorgeous sponsored Irish Guide Dog for the blind. We received this lovely update on how she is progressing.

April is excelling in her training.
She loves going on her training walks to shops and cafes but especially loves going out with her room mate ambassador dog Yanson. He has been a great help in showing her the ropes. She has great recall so gets to enjoy some time off running around the Dublin mountains. We are hoping that April will be picked for breeding so that other puppies can take on her amazing personality! We will miss her dearly but know that she is destined for greater things.

We can't imagine having to say goodbye to her.

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.

Rosie & Jim have made a donation of €2000 to the Oxfam Ireland 'Get Children Back to School' fundraising initiative. 

Children in Iraq probably want nothing more than to go back to their classrooms and playgrounds too. But as families who fled Mosul when the conflict started slowly start to return, they’re finding their schools destroyed.

Rosie & Jim sponsored €750 for the The Ronald McDonald House Charities cycling jersey.

They were planning an annual cycle around Blessington Lakes on April 25th but this fundraising event sadly had to be cancelled due to COVID-19 restrictions. So they have come up with a new plan - for May!

Cycle 60km during the month of May, in your own area and when suits you to help continue to care for our families at this unique time. It costs us €60.00 per night per family, and by registering you will be providing a family a home for the night when they need it the most.  Register online on Giv2Go for €60.00. Receive the bespoke Ronald McDonald cycle jersey. Keep one family close to their seriously sick child for one night. Cycle apart and come together for Ronald McDonald House.

Find out more about this on the RMHC website - https://rmhc.ie/events/charity-cycle4families-2020/

This is a hugely important fundraiser as they continue to raise funds for their New House alongside the New Children’s Hospital.

Check out the fab jerseys with Rosie & Jim logo! We're sure they'll get plenty of use once the restrictions are lifted :)

Susan O’Keeffe has Motor Neurone Disease, a progressive condition that affects how messages are sent to the muscles.  She can’t speak any more and has very limited mobility; she can type with one finger. Even though she has a very serious illness and is facing life’s end far too early, her focus is on helping others.  She has generously offered to help Our Lady’s Hospice & Care Services to raise funds for the build and fit-out of 36 new single, state-of-the-art, palliative care bedrooms at the Hospice in Harold’s Cross.  

We received a remarkable letter from Susan, telling us her amazing story, and the incredible benefit the Hospice at Blackrock is to her and other’s in a similar place to her.

We, at Rosie & Jim, were humbled to be able to donate €250 to the Hospice for these crucial building works.  

Aska, one of our sponsored Irish Guide Dogs for the Blind is now in training on the Guide Dog programme with trainer, Allyce.
