As I'm sure many of you have seen in the last 2 weeks or so there has being a lot of media coverage for the Hand in Hand charity. This great organisation was on the brink of closing it's doors and leaving many families without their amazing services and support.
For those who may not have heard of this charity, Hand in Hand is the children's cancer support service for Ireland. This unique organisation provide practical and emotional support to families throughout the treatment of their child's cancer.
Hand in Hand offer support to all families whose lives are affected by childhood cancer. The four main practical supports are:
- Household Cleaning
The primary treatment for childhood cancer takes place in Dublin so the added impact of significant regular travel is an added burden to families.
As a very fortunate father I can only imagine the benefit and comfort from having the support of an organisation like this in such a hard time. Since their struggle has being in the media spotlight they have received many kind donations and are in the position to keep the doors open for a little longer. Hand in Hand receive no state funding and all funds are from donations. So to try help raise some much needed finances we are doing a fundraiser for them!!!!
On the 5th of March this year we are going to use our annual Run a Muck event as a fundraiser for them! We want to get as many people involved for the event both to raise awareness for the charity and to try raise as much money as we can. Everyone who registers with us will be given a fundraising card and those who donate to the cause through these sponsorship cards will be entered into a raffle to win from the list of prizes donated already.
