Shine a Light for LauraLynn – Buy a Candle to Support

22 Sep
2014

Yankee’s, Irelands largest candle stores are partnering with WoodWick® candles to raise much needed funds for LauraLynn, Irelands only Children’s Hospice. This September Yankee’s aim to raise €20,000 by giving all proceeds from the sale of their top two WoodWick® fragrance candles to LauraLynn.

Yankee’s are asking for the support of the public to help achieve this €20,000 target by purchasing one of the amazing WoodWick® Fragranced candles (Baby Powder or Lemongrass) this September. The candles retail at €20.00. 100% of each €20 spent will go to LauraLynn and are available from Yankee’s Stores or online here.

“After hearing the story of how LauraLynn was founded and the great work they do for sick children and their families, we are Inspired to help the charity raise the much needed monies for them to continue this great work. We are appalled there is no government support for this much needed service.” Rachel & Neil McNulty, Yankee’s Candles.

Yankee’s, Irelands largest Candle stores are located in Blanchardstown Shopping Centre Dublin 15, St Stephens Green Shopping Centre Dublin 2, The Crescent Shopping Centre Limerick and Abbeygate Street Galway. www.yankeestores.ie

Tragically, 6 children die every week in Ireland from a life-limiting condition, yet LauraLynn House is still Ireland’s only children’s Hospice looking after some of these precious children and their families, providing respite, home support and end of life care.

With over 4,000 children with life-limiting conditions and over 350 child deaths a year, a Children’s Hospice is desperately needed.  However as LauraLynn receives no state funding for LauraLynn House, its palliative care services, support from community fundraising is vital.  For more on LauraLynn please seewww.LauraLynn.ie

“We would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to Yankee’s Candles & Woodwick Candles for thinking of us in this wonderful initiative.  You are helping us to provide care to Ireland’s most vulnerable children & their families, and making the most of short & precious lives.” Sharon Morrow, CEO, LauraLynn
