Donation to Maternity Bereavement Services, Portiuncula University Hospital

Tee19 Bar and Restaurant at Ballinasloe Golf Club recently donated a cheque for €3,570 to the Maternity Bereavement Services at Portiuncula University Hospital (PUH).

On the 02 December Tee19 Bar and Restaurant played host to Santa Claus as well as holding a raffle to raise the funds.

Speaking about the donation, Sharon Kelly, Fundraising Volunteer and Frankie Kenny, Owner of Tee19 said, “We are delighted to have raised these funds for the Willow Suite/Maternity Bereavement Services at Portiuncula University Hospital. We would like to take this opportunity to thank all the volunteers and sponsors who were instrumental in helping make the fundraiser a success.”

"Having grown up in the Golf Club, I have fond memories of Santa Claus visiting the children in the club in the run-up to Christmas, and I always wanted to see the tradition return," said Denise Kenny, Tee19 Secretary.  It was a tremendous success to accomplish this while also raising much-needed funds for the Willow Suite/Maternity Bereavement Services.”

Leanne Norton, Bereavement Support Midwife at PUH said, “We are extremely grateful to all at Tee19 for the time and effort they have gone to with this fundraiser. The monies raised will go a long way to ensure the grieving families who use our Willow Suite will have the most comfortable experience possible.”
