We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who recently supported our Donation Meal Deal in aid of The Jack and Jill Children’s Foundation.
Across our shops you, our customers, raised an amazing €5,025 by purchasing the meals and here at Hillbilly’s we decided to add to your generosity by donating a further €10,000 ourselves. That brought the total donated to The Jack and Jill Children’s Foundation to €15,025 which will provide 937 hours of care to sick children and their families all across Ireland.
The Jack & Jill Foundation provide nursing care and support for children with severe neurological development issues from birth up to the age of five, as well as offering some respite to the parents and families. This could be through home visits from nurses, with practical tips on how to access the services a child will need. Listening to what parents want for their child and making representations on their behalf, bereavement support and an online forum for parents.
Over the past 20 years they have cared for 2,142 families and take on new referrals every week. They have families all across Ireland and in a time of turmoil they are on their doorsteps within 24 hours with help in hand. The €15,025 given will provide a gift of time for these children and there is no greater gift you can give. Thank you very much for your generosity.
