Four very deserving charities in the Midwest have benefited from the proceeds of the most recent Christmas Fair and Raffle run by UL Hospitals Group in December 2019 before the Covid-19 pandemic.

Colette Cowan, CEO of UL Hospitals Group, said, “UL Hospitals Group fundraised for six deserving organisations. The Christmas Fair is something we hold at UHL every year, and as well as bringing some seasonal spirit into the hospital for our patients and visitors, it allows us to partner with local organisations making a real difference in our community.”

UL Hospitals Group fundraised an incredible €5,000 for four deserving charities. The four charitable beneficiaries of the proceeds are Limerick Suicide Watch, the suicide prevention group which patrols the four bridges in Limerick City; Peter McVerry Trust, which is committed to reducing homelessness and the harm caused by substance misuse and social disadvantage; Clare Haven Services, which provides support and information to women and children who experience domestic abuse; and the Munster Indian Cultural Association (MICA), which promotes the social and cultural welfare of Indian families in the Mid-West.

Representatives from the four charities recently attended the grounds of University Hospital Limerick and, in line with the Covid-19 distancing restrictions in place at the hospital, received their funds in person from the CEO Colette Cowan.
