Bibby Financial Services Ireland partner with Laura Lynn to raise funds

LauraLynn, Ireland’s Children’s Hospice, has received a boost to their fundraising efforts following a partnership with Bibby Financial Services Ireland (BFSI), the leading invoice finance company.

Bibby has partnered with Laura Lynn over a six-year period and has raised a total of €15,500 with a recent donation of €2,915 to the charity.

BFSI staff and management have raised the funds through a variety of internal and external fundraising initiatives.

The funding is used to provide direct medical care for children living with life-limiting conditions, and support for their families. Such services include respite and end of life care to children, bereavement support, sibling and family camps and parent and toddler programmes.

This month, the organisation will launch its LauraLynn@Home service to provide their hospice services in the home. The new service, the first programme of its kind, will cost in the region of €800,000.

Commenting today Michelle Byers, Fundraising, Laura Lynn, Ireland’s Children’s Hospice said:

‘We are continually challenged to raise much needed funds to assist the children and families we support each year. All donations we receive provide critical care for children and we could not do this without the support of organisations like Bibby. We thank BFSI for their continued support of LauraLynn and for taking their time to visit us recently. Their contribution has been a huge boost to our continued efforts and is invaluable to us.’

Commenting today, Ronan Horgan, Managing Director, Bibby Financial Services Ireland said:

‘We are keen to get involved in the local community and provide support where we can. We were struck by the work of LauraLynn in providing care for so many children and support for their families. As a team, we were delighted to help out and hope that the funds raised will make a difference in some way.’
