Galway Sick Kids Foundation was officially launched last week in Tom Sheridans, Knocknacara. The charity was established in June 2017 and achieved charitable status in March last year.
The purpose of the charity is to fund-raise for St Bernadettes’ Paediatric Unit of University Hospital Galway. They are currently working on two projects, the refurbishment of the children’s bathroom for special needs and the redecoration of the entrance, corridors and examination rooms.
“Earlier this year we were delighted to have been chosen as the preferred charity partners of Knocknacarra FC.Last night members of the charity presented a cheque for €37,000 to the staff at St Bernadette’s,” said spokeswoman Denise Holland.
“While there are a number of fundraising events planned over the next few weeks the committee are looking forward to the inaugural ball at The Galmont in Galway, on Friday June 12 2020. We want to say a big thank you to Martin and the team at Tom Sheridans Knocknacarra for sponsoring the launch,” she added.
