January 2016 – 1st DoneDeal Charity Month of the year!
The 3 charities benefitting from our 1st DoneDeal Charity Month of the year were chosen by Barry, Kerrie and Dave: South East Radiotherapy Trust (SERT) ALONE DEBRA Ireland South East Radiotherapy Trust (SERT) Barry’s mother has just finished her own cancer treatment and she used the service. She felt it was a massive help and support. She met lots of people in the same situation and made many new friends. A service like this makes a tough situation that little bit easier. ALONE Some older people face challenges and lack of services as they age and ALONE work to solve these issues to ensure the older person can remain living in the community for as long as possible. 100% of all donations go directly to providing services to vulnerable older people. DEBRA Ireland DEBRA Ireland provide hope and support to the 300 people living in Ireland with the condition and to their families who regularly act as carers.
They also drive research into treatments and cures for those living with EB. The charity has played a vital part in the establishment of EB clinics in both St. James Hospital for adults and Our Lady’s Hospital for Children in Crumlin. Since 1988 they have seen our member numbers increase year on year. In a response to their members and their families, in 2005 we saw the introduction of the role of family support worker and 2013 they have our first EB Clinical Nurse Specialist.
