The Gaelic Players Association (GPA) presented a cheque for €3,000 to LauraLynn Children’s Hospice.

Dublin Footballers, Con O’Callaghan and Brian Howard were joined by Tipperary Hurler Patrick Maher to make the presentation to Claire Shiels at LauraLynn.

 

Paul Flynn, CEO of the GPA said, “LauraLynn Children’s Hospice does amazing work and we are delighted to be able to make this donation. The support that LauraLynn provides to children with life-limiting conditions and their families is fantastic and we know that this money will be put to the best possible use for those who need it most.”

 

Claire Shiels, Corporate Fundraiser, at LauraLynn said, “We are grateful to the GPA for this generous donation, it will go a long way to providing services for the children and families in our care. We’re looking forward to developing the relationship with the GPA and their members and the possibility of some visits to the hospice in the new year which the children will no doubt be very excited about.”

 

LauraLynn provides palliative care and support for children with life-limiting conditions and their families. Our holistic approach to care enables us to support the whole family, allowing parents to be ‘Mums and Dads’ rather than full-time carers and all hospice care is free. Support for children from birth to age 18 with care provided either in the family home, in the hospice itself or in the community.
