Milford Harvest Fair 2014



By I Love Limerick Correspondent Niamh Higgins

The 29th Milford Hospice annual Harvest Fair will take place Sunday the 31st of August at the UL arena. The fair will commence from 11am and run until 4pm.

Each year the fair raises much needed funds for the Milford Hospice. These funds allow the hospice to continue to provide much needed specialist palliative care services to areas covering Limerick, Clare and North Tipperary.

All of the services provided by Milford Hospice are delivered at the highest quality care. They rely immensely on the fundraising efforts of the public as well as the ongoing support of the annual Milford Hospice Harvest Fair. Last year alone Milford Hospice cared for close to 1,250 individual patients.





The Hospice itself delivers support in a number of different ways including providing an In-patient unit at Milford, Hospice at Home, and Day Care whilst also offering a range of support services to families and loved ones.

Milford Care Centre incorporates the services of Milford Hospice, Milford Nursing Home and the Milford Day Care Centre. As well as this the care centre also have an Education, Research and Professional Development service that provides a range of palliative care and gerontology courses both in-house and on-line.

The UL arena is located less than a ten minute walk from Milford Care Centre in the campus of the University of Limerick. All are welcome to attend this popular event and show support for this exceptionally well worthy cause.
