Home Instead Senior Care puts the kettle on to raise funds for Waterford Hospice Movement

Home Instead Senior Care, in association with Cleaboy Business Park, was one of the local businesses that hosted a coffee morning in aid of Waterford Hospice Movement on Thursday, September 16th.

The WHM Coffee Morning was organised in order to raise much needed funds to provide hospice care for patients currently under its care in Waterford.

Home Instead and Cleaboy Business Park were delighted to host a coffee morning for the fourth consecutive year. Danette Connolly, Director of Services at Home Instead said “As a company that supplies caring professionals to the region, we are acutely aware of the absolute necessity for a dedicated hospice facility in Waterford. The level of care provided to both the patient and the family is paramount. Through the provision of funds and services the best quality of life can be guaranteed to the patient and their support network of family and friends”.

Ms. Connolly added “It’s no secret that Waterford deserves a dedicated hospice facility. If something as simple as putting the kettle on can raise money for such a worthy cause, we’ll definitely be doing it again”.

The Coffee Morning enjoyed a great turnout as the residents of Cleaboy Business Park gave generously to support this very worthwhile initiative.

According to Carmel Organ, Administration Manager at Cleaboy Business Park, “Everybody who attended on the morning gave generously. We had the full support of all the businesses in the Park, including WWRD, Reflexite, ABB, SISK and many more. We were also delighted that the Mayor of Waterford, Cllr. Mary Roche could be with us. The Park has always harboured a strong community spirit and the turnout this morning was case in point of that.”
