The annual AIB Community €1 Million Fund, which launched earlier this year, will see over seventy local charities receive funding as part of the initiative with Mayo Roscommon Hospice being chosen as one.
Having been nominated by AIB customers and the public, Mayo Roscommon Hospice Foundation will receive €6,500 from the fund in 2022. The funding will allow the Hospice Foundation to continue to support their work in Mayo and Roscommon.
Earlier this year, AIB launched the first €1 Million Community Fund and asked its customers and the wider public to nominate registered charities that connect with causes that matter most to them and their communities. The charities which received the most nominations in each of the five regions (Connaught, Munster, Ulster (ROI), Leinster and Greater Dublin) received funding.
On being nominated, Martina Jennings, CEO Mayo Roscommon Hospice Foundation said: “We are absolutely delighted with this funding, which will go towards Palliative Care Services in Mayo and Roscommon. We are so grateful to the local communities and supporters who nominated us, and without whom we wouldn’t be able to fund this vital service. We are also so thankful to AIB for this initiative and supporting so many causes, like ourselves, throughout Ireland.”
