Hi folks,

The Airport Police Fire Service recruit class 2014 will be holding a spinning charity event on Sunday March 9th in the Main terminal building at Cork Airport, all in aid of Marymount Hospice. On the day the class will be spinning the distance from Cork Airport to Dublin Airport and back. Just to make it more interesting we will be doing the whole distance in full fire gear.

This is a fantastic local Cork charity and all donations are greatly appreciated. If you are around on Sunday 9th March please pop in if not to make a donation at least you should get a good laugh off us!!!!
Donations can be made through this page and also on the day Collection buckets will be available.

Thank you for your support and hope to see you on the day.

Marymount Hospice Cork
Marymount University Hospice
Marymount is a Specialist Palliative Care Unit based at Marymount University Hospital & Hospice Curraheen Co. Cork, in a state of the art purpose build campus which opened in 2011. Our services are provided free of charge to anyone who needs them. 
We offer a 44-bed in-patient unit, but the hospice also offers care and support to those patients who choose to be cared for in their own homes. Working in close liaison with community based medical and nursing services, hospice based nurses will visit patients in their own home through the Community Palliative Care team. This service is designed to complement the skills and the resources of the patient’s own family doctor and other community based healthcare professionals. Other services available at Marymount include a Hospice Day Unit and Outpatients Assessment Unit.
The overall objective of our palliative care services is to ensure that patients are free from pain and other distressing symptoms, thus enabling them to live full, active and rewarding lives. The Sisters of Charity have cared for the people of Cork since 1870 and that tradition of dedicated and compassionate personal care is still very much in evidence today Hospice care is the total care of the patient and family at that stage of serious illness when the focus has shifted from treatment aimed at cure to ensuring quality of life. It seeks to relieve the physical symptoms of the illness while equally addressing the person’s emotional, social and spiritual needs. It seeks to treat the person rather than the illness and it is all about living life to the end.
The Friends of Marymount
The Friends are a unit of 30 Volunteers who receive no payments or commissions from any of the Fundraising Events carried out by them or by others on their behalf.  In 2005 the Friends received a Civic Award for their contribution to the Voluntary Sector of Cork City.
Affilliated to the Irish Hospice Foundation, the Friends of Marymount are a voluntary group who raise funds to enhance the hospital and to benefit the patients. Their major fundraising events are “Sunflower Days” and “Irelands Biggest Coffee Morning”.
The Friends are currently fundraising to support and maintain the current level of services available at the Hospital. Hospice, our Daycare Unit and our Home Care Units. Marymount University Hospice is very grateful for the ongoing support which it receives from the HSE, voluntary groups and organisations and also to the people of Cork City and County who have supported the work of the hospice over the past 125 years.
