I attach here a receipt to acknowledge your donation. The funds that The Island Hunt Pony Club have raised for us will make a real difference to the people that we support. One of the services that it will help is Nurses for Night Care, this is a national service that enables people to spend their final days at home in their own bed surrounded by their loved ones whilst receiving professional nursing care. The demand for this vital service is increasing, this year we will need to raise over €800,000 to continue to provide this service to all those that need it. We receive very limited funding from the state so voluntary donations like those that you have raised are so important in making this care a reality.
On behalf of the people and the families that we support – thank you so much. If I can provide you with any further information about the Irish Hospice Foundation or the work that we do please do not hesitate to get in touch.
