Beds For Beaumont

See article on Page 5 of our June edition of Ayrwaves.

As infection is a huge concern for people with Cystic Fibrosis. they need to be isolated, but with only seven single rooms available in Beaumont for C.F. patients they often have to share a six bed ward leaving them at risk. One of our parishioners Deirdre Kelly, decided in September 2015 to do a charity walk for a new C.F. inpatient unit in memory of her daughter Lisa who at only 19 died in September 2013.

This would make being in hospital for young adults with C.F. easier and with less risks than being in the public wards. Friends decided to join her on the walk, they began walking 20k every week for 50 weeks getting family and friends to sponsor them €2 a week hoping to raise €5000 for the new C.F. unit in Beaumont. We are now at week number 43.

If you would like to donate, there is a collection box inside the entrances of the church where anonymous donations can be left in an envelope or it can be given into the parish office or sacristy or get in touch with Deirdre Kelly 087 6141 271 or Caroline Sutton 086 1659 349.

'65 Roses' is how some children first learn how to say 'Cystic Fibrosis'.

'65 Roses' pins are available from the Pasish office or Sacristy for €2
