My Personal Message

Everyone that knows me, will know that I like a good drink, and a good party. Well with the year that in it, i have decided to go a stay off the demon drink for 3 months a go into training for the Electric 5km Run in Dublin on 22nd March 2014. If you know me, you will know that I cant run 5 meters without collapsing into the foetal position, so this is going to be a great challenge for me. I have decided to try and raise some much needed funds for the below charities in the process.

These are two organisations that are close to my heart. Milford Care Center is a place where I have seen many close friends and relatives cared for, it really is a great cause.

AWARE is an organisation which deals with depression and try to educate and eliminate the stigma attached to mental illness. Something I have experienced first hand.

I will be doing all kinds of fundraising events on the coming months. Raffles, Table Quizzes, FIFA Tournaments, Bag Packing, etc will all form part of the fundraising process.

The final sum that is raised, I will personally double so as each charity will get a decent lump some at the end of it.

Thanks for visiting my personal fundraising page. The charity(s) that I have chosen to support below are very worthy causes and I would very much appreciate your support in helping me to raise funds for these organisations.

Milford Care Centre

Milford Care Centre, Castletroy, Limerick, established by the Little Company of Mary in 1928, provides Specialist Palliative Care through a comprehensive range of Hospice at Home, Specialist In-patient Unit and Day Care Centre services.  These services are provided throughout the Mid-West Region, incorporating Counties Clare, Limerick and North Tipperary.

Our primary objective, as set out in our Mission Statement is:-

"We in Milford Care Centre as a Little Company of Mary Health Care facility aim to provide the highest quality of care to patients or residents, family and friends, both in the areas of palliative care and services to the older person, as envisaged by Venerable Mary Potter"

In order to maintain services at levels capable of responding to the ever growing needs and operating to the highest standards of care, there continues to be a significant reliance on fundraising events which are vital to make up the shortfall necessary to sustain the provision of this high quality of care on offer at Milford Hospice.



Aware undertakes to create a society where people affected by stress, depression, bipolar and mood disorders are understood, supported, free from stigma, and are encouraged to access appropriate therapies.

The three pillars of Aware’s work are information, education and support. Information on Aware’s services and different aspects of depression (including depression in young people and supporting a loved one) is offered through the website Aware.ie and by post. Aware currently provides an education programme to secondary school students called Beat the Blues as well as a different programme called Life Skills which trains people how to manage mild to moderate depression or anxiety, based on principles of cognitive behavioural therapy. Support services include support groups (nationwide); a Support Line and Support Mail service.

 More than 450,000 people in Ireland experience depression (1 in 10) at any one time but many hide their condition and never get help. Aware’s message is one of hope: recovery is possible. Early intervention,as well as ongoing support are very important.

 Aware was first established in 1985.
