Many thanks to Colette Gill who presented Galway Hospice with a cheque for €1,846. Colette raised these proceeds for Galway Hospice through her participation in the Limerick Marathon.
Pictured at the cheque presentation are (l-r): Tom Joe Gill, Mary Gill, Eric Ward, Simon Scott (Galway Hospice), Colette Gill, Linda McTigue, Tommy Ward and Alex Ward.
Well done to Colette for taking on such a significant challenge for Galway Hospice, and for raising such a fantastic amount in the process.
This donation will help us to continue providing our fully-accredited specialist palliative care services to adults and children with cancer and other life-limiting illnesses throughout Galway city and county, and on the adjoining islands, as well as providing support to their families and carers. These services include Home Care (365 days per year), Inpatient Care (18 beds), Day Care (3 days per week), Bereavement Support (for as long as it is needed) and Education (for staff, carers and multidisciplinary professionals in the community). All services provided by Galway Hospice are free of charge to patients and their families.
Thanks again Colette, and well done!
