The Society of Young Solicitors are proud of and thankful to all of our members for the support of the Jack and Jill Foundation as our chosen charity for 2018.
Our donation of €3,371.21 enabled the provision of over 207 hours of home nursing respite care and hospice at home respite care for families in every county of Ireland. We attach the kind letter received from Carmel Doyle, CEO of the Jack and Jill Children’s Foundation, thanking us for the donation on behalf of the Trustees and families.
The Jack & Jill Children’s Foundation provides direct funding, to families of children up to the age of five who suffer severe intellectual and physical developmental delay, enabling them to purchase home respite care. We also provide end of life care to all children up to the age of five.
These are children who as a result of their condition require intensive home nursing care.The Foundation gives these families THE GIFT OF TIME, time to do the things that we so often take for granted like shopping, taking their other children to the park, a night’s sleep and enjoying their time together.
