Christmas is a Time of Giving!
We’re delighted that B&Q Swords and Avoca are Giving to Support Patient Care at the Mater Hospital
B&Q Swords Remembrance Tree for the Mater Foundation
B&Q Swords donated 2 Christmas Trees to patients of the Mater Hospital. One of their beautiful trees is now a Remembrance Tree at our volunteer stand in the Whitty Wing of the Mater Hospital. Staff, patients and relatives who want to remember a loved one who has passed away or is unwell can can buy a name card for €2 and hang it from the tree. This is a gift that continues to give as every name card purchased will benefit End of Life Care in the Mater Hospital.
B&Q Swords also donated a second tree for the Mater Family Hostel which will bring comfort to families who are up visiting patients over the festive period.
Avoca Christmas Morning Hamper for the Mater Foundation
Avoca donated a wonderful Christmas Morning Hamper for our raffle in aid of the Mater Hospital. Raffle tickets for the Christmas Morning Hamper are being sold at our stand in the Whitty Wing of the Mater Hospital. The Christmas Morning Hamper was prepared by the lovely staff of Avoca for toasty mornings at home over the festive season. It’s stuffed full of Avoca’s delicious teas, marmalades and jams! As well as other indulgences like prosecco and chocolate.
Raffle tickets for the Christmas Morning Hamper are €2 for a single ticket or €5 for a strip of 3. All proceeds from the raffle will go to patient care. And the hamper itself will be a wonderful gift for someone who’s had cause to visit the hospital recently, during a part of the year where everyone would like to be at home and with their family and friends.
