Thanks to all the ads you placed during the month of July, we’ve been able to donate a €35,916 to these really deserving and hardworking charities: Waterford Hospice Jockeys Emergency Fund Crumlin Children’s Hospital We invited all 3 charities to visit the DoneDeal offices and they shared with us how much this donation from DoneDealers will help: Speaking at the cheque presentation: Marie Cummins, Fundraising Chairperson, Waterford Hospice Movement said: “Waterford Hospice is delighted to be chosen as DoneDeal’s ‘Charity of the Month’, and we extend our sincere thanks to each and every person involved. It is with the constant support of companies and people like DoneDeal and their community that we can continue to provide our service. The donation will go toward the construction and design of a 20 Bed Palliative Care unit at University Hospital Waterford. When completed, the unit will serve the needs of patients throughout the South East and will be located on the grounds of University Hospital Waterford.” Commenting on the donation, Denis Egan, spokesperson for Jockeys Emergency Fund, said: “The Trustees of the fund are extremely grateful to DoneDeal for its most kind donation. The contribution will be used to help fund the costs associated with the provision of care for three ex-riders who suffered serious injury in race riding accidents. The total annual cost of providing this care is over €1 million, so this generous donation from DoneDeal and their community is greatly appreciated.” Speaking on behalf of CMFR Crumlin, Mary McGrane, Corporate Development Manager said of the donation: “We are hugely appreciative of DoneDeal’s generous contribution which enables us to provide the best possible care to some of Ireland’s sickest children. CMRF Crumlin is driven by their belief that ‘every sick child deserves every chance’, and DoneDeal’s donation will be put towards a very important project to help us with our work: the refurbishment of the Cardiac Unit in Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital, Crumlin.” #Charity #LatestCharityMonths
