Your Local Hospice Needs Your Help
Many of you will know the important and valuable work that the Hospice carries out not only in Waterford but all over the country.
Their annual on-street collection ‘Hospice Sunflower Days’, has been cancelled for the second year in a row and COVID-19 continues to have a devastating impact on Hospices and their ability to fundraise to support vital frontline services across Ireland.
Funds raised through the virtual sunflower garden will go directly to your chosen hospice.But fear not you can still support the Hospice and the amazing work that they do by buying a virtual Sunflower (which you can do so HERE).
Keep their memory bright and support Hospice Sunflower Days.
Dedicate a virtual sunflower in memory of your loved one in our Virtual Sunflower Garden, an online space where we can remember together.
Every euro raised locally, stays locally. That means your donation will go directly to your local hospice so that they can continue to provide person-centred, holistic, loving care to our patients and their loved ones.
SPONSOR A SUNFLOWER
Waterford Hospice Movement CLG. was established in 1988 to provide a Hospice Homecare – Palliative Care service to the people of Waterford City, County and South Kilkenny. A registered charity (8998), Waterford Hospice operates from an office located in the grounds of University Hospital Waterford (UHW).
The annual running costs for the Home Care Service are in the region of €700,000. This is funded by the HSE grant of €280,000 per year, leaving a total of approximately €400K to be fund-raised to maintain the current level of service.
All Board members give their time voluntarily and receive no salary. They are tasked with the overall care, development and promotion of the hospice. Based at UHW, the Administration Manager oversees the day to day running of all non-medical matters.
Please support this amazing charity and the work that they do in Waterford and South Kilkenny.
