Be a Hero for LauraLynn

Children’s Hospice Week (CHW) takes place from 20-26th May 2019 and is the only week in the year dedicated to raising awareness and funds for our children’s hospice care and the hundreds of seriously ill children and families supported by LauraLynn Children’s Hospice.

2019 marks the fifth LauraLynn Children’s Hospice Week campaign which will focus on the theme ‘Moments That Matter‘.

Moments that matter’ builds on our theme of ‘making the most of short and precious lives’ and will focus on how precious time is for families by capturing moments in time.

This allows us to showcase a breadth of feelings and emotions. Families can give an insight into their everyday life – the happy moments and more difficult times; and at the same time LauraLynn can highlight the wide range of support they bring to make moments that matter for families.

Unlike a hospital, a hospice focuses on how a child can live with their condition, and provide support for the wider family who are often under immense physical, emotional and financial pressure.

We are excited to be partnering with Virgin Media One (formerly TV3) again this year. Since 2015 Ireland AM has partnered with LauraLynn to raise much needed funds and awareness for Children’s Hospice Week. To date the partnership has generated more than €350,000 thanks to the generosity of their viewers. These funds have gone directly to providing specialised hospice care to families all over Ireland whether in the home or in our hospice facility.

There’s little things you can do to help us throughout the week here, but don’t forget that during the course of Children’s Hospice Week we’ll have an exciting range of activities taking place… watch this space!


If you’d like to donate vital funds to LauraLynn Children’s Hospice you can do so online here or give us a call on 01-2893151 – we appreciate all donations, no matter how big or small!
