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
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!
