Children’s Hospice Week 2018!
We are excited to celebrate Children’s Hospice Week this year with a host of exciting events. Running from June 1st – 10th, National Children’s Hospice Week aims to raise awareness and vital funds for children’s hospice care in Ireland.
A number of fundraising drives will take place in LauraLynn across the week, alongside a number of family events which will celebrate the children and families of LauraLynn. Some of the events include a children’s bake-off, flower and pottery arranging, singing workshop, art workshops for families as well as a puppet making class with Bosco! LauraLynn have also teamed up with a number of specialists to provide complimentary therapies to parents such a massages, skin treatments, hair styling and more, allowing them to opportunity to relax and unwind, safe in the knowledge their child is receiving first class care from LauraLynn.
The week will culminate in a live telethon with our friends from TV3’s Ireland AM on Friday 8th June, where we will ask the nation to tune in and come together to donate funds and help LauraLynn reach their fundraising target.
Since opening in September 2011, LauraLynn Ireland Children’s Hospice has provided specialised hospice care to more than 325 children with life-limiting conditions and their families. Unlike a hospital, a hospice provides holistic care to each child which enables them to make the most of every day. This care also extends to the family of each patient who are often dealing with difficult emotional, physical and financial pressure.
