Our Cause

 

The North Tipperary Hospice Movement was founded over 30 years ago.  Initially it concentrated on the establishment of an in-home support service involving the provision of specialist beds and ancillary equipment together with appropriate nursing care to assist terminally ill patients who wished to spend their final weeks or days in the comfort of their own homes surrounded by family and friends.  More recently, roughly 10 years ago in fact, to enable us to be in a position to intervene at an earlier stage in the cancer journey, Support Centres were established in Nenagh (Suaimhneas) and Thurles (Suir Haven) to provide counselling, therapies and other supports on an individual and group basis to cancer patients and their families.  In addition an Outreach Centre has been established in Roscrea.

Since it was first established, all the services provided by the North Tipperary Hospice Movement are delivered to patients and their families on a confidential basis and totally free of charge.  Currently the annual budget required is in the region of €400,000 all of which is raised through fundraising events and voluntary contributions.  We are deeply indebted to the many thousands of supporters who have contributed so willingly over the past 30 years to enable us to keep on providing these valuable services throughout North Tipperary.  Naturally the events of the past two years have had a serious impact on our ability to raise the necessary funds so we are appealing for your support to make this Campervan Draw a success and ease our financial difficulties in the short term.

We are confident that the people of North Tipperary and beyond will rally to our call yet again as they have done so often in the past.
