This is a lovely social event held each year, where we are delighted to support the Hospice movement, with our focus this year on the advancing project to build a local Hospice for the people of Wicklow.
All money raised will go towards the building of this Hospice, and updated reports note that
plans have been drawn up, to be built at Brittas Bay
€1m has been committed by Department of Health/HSE to building costs
the Department/HSE will meet the annual running costs of €3m per annum
Our Lady’s Hospice, Harold's Cross will operate the hospice
a €2.25 million bank loan has been put in place to help with building cost and tenders will go out soon for the building (fundraising is needed to service and clear this loan)
it is hoped to open the Hospice in 2019.
Enjoy a cuppaand a chat, while supporting a most worthy cause.
