CEO of Mayo/Roscommon Hospice Foundation, Cynthia Clampett, said €2 million has to be raised each year to co-fund the palliative home care service in the region, and to raise the €14 million necessary to build two Hospice Units (approx. €9 million for the Mayo Unit and €5 million for Roscommon).
“Thanks to the support of the public over the years we have €8 million in our reserve building fund, and the banks have agreed to lend us the balance.
“We greatly appreciate the support we receive from the Irish Hospice Foundation in promoting our two big annual fundraising events; Hospice Sunflower Days in June and Hospice National Coffee Morning in September.
“I’m looking forward to the performance of the God Box and I hope Roscommon people will come out to support the event, which I know will be a very inspiring and uplifting experience.”
