On Friday, June 10 and Saturday, June 11, local volunteers will be selling sunflower merchandise to raise vital funds for the South Westmeath hospice and specialist palliative homecare services.
Members of the local public who wish to support the South Westmeath Hospice by donating online can do so by sponsoring a virtual sunflower in memory of a loved one at www.togetherforhospice.ie/sunflowerdays
This fundraising event aims to raise much needed funds for the South Westmeath Hospice enabling the service to continue to provide person-centred loving care to patients and their families.
Funds raised through the 2022 campaign will be used to support hospice and homecare facilities with all funds raised locally, staying locally. Funds raised will help to purchase new equipment, upgrade hospice facilities and support local hospice services, with every euro raised locally, staying locally.
Hospice care and homecare is all about providing help and support to those living with a life-limiting illness and their families. Hospice care is provided either in specialist units in the hospice or in the person’s own home with specialist palliative trained home care nurses.
“We are delighted to launch our 2022 Hospice Sunflower Days campaign and to combine the traditional with the digital this year with the return of our on-street collection and our virtual Sunflower Remembrance Garden. We are calling on everyone to mark Hospice Sunflower Days by supporting on-street or online this year and donating what you can to help South Westmeath Hospice," Clare Lennon, Chairperson, South Westmeath Hospice, speaking about the launch of the 2022 Hospice Sunflower Days campaign, said.
You can support South Westmeath Hospice by donating to on-street volunteers on Friday, June 10 or Saturday, June 11, or by dedicating a sunflower in memory of a loved one online today at www.togetherforhospice.ie/sunflowerdays
