You live your life caring for family, enjoying friends, sharing in all that this community offers. But have you considered what your community will be like for future generations? Anyone can leave a legacy and everyone can make a difference to generations to come. Whether you leave a small or large amount everything can make a difference:

  • €100 could provide information leaflets on cancer
  • €2,600 could help provide a profiling bed for a patient
  • €16,000 could help provide the hospital with a Ventilator
