Christmas Memorial Tree Testimonials



 

Testimonials for the Memorial Tree

Alzheimer’s Society Drogheda:

The monies received from Drogheda Rotary Club were used for the day to day running of the Day Care Centre. At which meals are provided for clients & respite for carers.

The donation was particularly appreciated as the HSE had reduced their funding to the Society.

Ann Short (Treasurer)

St Vincent de Paul:

Again we must publicly thank Drogheda Rotary Club for their continued support and the fact that the society will be one of the recipients/beneficiaries of the Memorial Tree Project. All the monies donated are spent locally and immediately, particularly around Xmas time, when the demands of the Society are at its greatest.

There is a special focus on children & the elderly.

Billy Gavin (President)

Drogheda Women's & Children's Refuge

Drogheda Women's & Children's Refuge provide safe accommodation and support for families fleeing violence in their own home.

The Rotary club of Drogheda through their kind donations and constant support have enabled us to provide presents for children staying in the refuge at Christmas time and those who have recently been resettled.

The donations have also helped us to provide essential items to children and families staying in the refuge that are not covered by our statutory funding for example: Toothbrushes, Underwear and socks, Hair brushes and combs, Soap and shampoo, Baby food, Milk and nappies.

The support from the Rotary club has been vital to the refuge and our clients. The public acknowledgement by the Rotary Club of our work has enabled more people suffering from abuse to come forward and access our services. We can never thank them enough.

Thank you

Drogheda Hospice Homecare Movement

The support we have received from Drogheda Rotary Club is really appreciated from both staff & patients. In particular, it has meant that we can pay for specialised medical equipment for use in the patient’s home, such as hospital beds, mattresses & mobile aids, which our palliative care nurses request from time to time.

Our most popular & rewarding activity, is the transport provided door to door by our team of volunteer drivers. These volunteers bring patients (mainly cancer patients but also patients with terminal illnesses) for day treatments in both Dublin and local hospitals.

Once again, thank you & keep up the good work.
