UCC Sport partners with CUH Charity
On behalf of UCC Sport, the Clubs Executive is proud and excited to announce that we will be supporting the Cork University Hospital Charity’s Children’s Appeal as our official charity partner this year.
Every year, over 30,000 children attend the Children’s Unit in CUH. The hospital is a specialist centre for children with a wide range of illnesses including Cystic Fibrosis, Diabetes and Epilepsy to name a few. The Children’s Appeal aims to refurbish the Unit, which has not been improved since 1978, by providing a much needed upgrade and capital programme to create state-of-the-art facilities and acquire modern equipment. Work has already begun on building the new Children’s Unit and your donations will be used to help purchase life-saving equipment and supplies. With your help, we will make every child’s journey a little easier by continuing to deliver the best paediatric care that our children deserve, right across the regions of Cork, Kerry, Limerick, Clare, Tipperary and Waterford.
The CUH Charity is a fantastic local charity and we hope that you will join us in our efforts to raise as much money as possible. You can support this very deserving cause by helping us with our fundraising activities throughout the 2016/17 academic year. Alternatively, you can make a donation on the charity’s website where you can include “UCC Sport” in the message box if you wish.
