OUR STORY

OUR STORY

 

 

Friends of Leukaemia Patients Cork are an Independent registered

Charity -Voluntary Group Established in 1985 by Imelda Reynolds. 

 

Since then we have provided help to leukaemia patients and their

carer’s. A Not-for-Profit Organisation governed by a board of

Directors who are responsible for programme development

standards and operations, we observe all the appropriate

governance protocols and fully transparent with audited accounts.

 

 

 

Our Motto Is “We all need a helping hand” and 100% of donations made to our charity goes directly 

into providing much needed support and practical help to leukaemia patients and their carers from 

the Munster area.

 

We provide home-from-home accommodation within walking distance of the hospital in case of 

readmission or a consult until they are ready to return home again and all made available free of 

charge to patients and their carers who have limited financial resources.

 

The feedback from patients who have been provided with accommodation has been overwhelmingly 

positive and was a tremendous help to them during what can be a very difficult time, providing a 

home away home and away from the hospital to relax and to spend time be with their loved ones 

during their treatment.

 

This facility is provided through charitable donation and fundraising initiatives held throughout the 

year. We do not receive any government or state funding to assist us with our work and 

we continually need new ideas as we would not be able to continue to do so without the help of 

the public.

 

Our Patrons Ger Power and Pascal Scott are invaluable to our organisation. We are truly grateful to everyone that has helped us over the years. If you wish to hold a fundraising Event in aid of our charity we would be delighted to hear from you. Please inform us so we can make a record of it and we can provide you with support and resources and help to make the event a great success. 

We are a totally voluntary organisation with no salaries paid out.

 

Your support really does make a big difference!
