Ireland's Children's Hospice
Bag2School are proud to be a major fundraising partner for LauraLynn House, Ireland’s Children’s Hospice. For every school that has a collection, Bag2School will pay an additional 10% to The LauraLynn House, on top of what is paid to your school. Please help us to help them, making the most of short & precious lives.
So far Bag2School, with the help of many schools across the country, have donated over €24,000 to The LauraLynn House! We would like to thank all the schools who have participated in this initiative as without this partnership, we wouldn't be able to provide this support.
LauraLynn – Ireland’s Children’s Hospice provides home-support, respite & end of life care, to children with life-limiting conditions. It's not a sad place; it's a place for living. A place of fun and laughter, enjoyment, love and support. While we cannot change a child's diagnosis, we can change the quality of a child's life and their families.
LauraLynn House was officially opened in September 2011 in Leopardstown. With over 1,400 children with life-limiting conditions and over 300 child deaths a year, a Children's Hospice was desperately needed. However as LauraLynn receives no state funding, & must raise €2.3m annually to keep services going, support from the community is vital.
"Heartfelt thanks to Bag2School and all the schools across the country who participated in their fundraising initiative. You are continuously helping us to provide care to Ireland's most vulnerable children & their families, and helping us make the most of short and precious lives. Thank you for sharing the caring!" – Liz O’Riordan, Fundraising & Marketing Coordinator, LauraLynn – Ireland’s First Children’s Hospice
