The family of the late Micheál and Margaret Hughes (Hughes SuperValu) are organising a commemorative golf outing in Galway Golf club on May 17th with all funds raised going towards Galway Hospice.
Galway Hospice Foundation is a voluntary organisation. It was established in 1986 when a group of local doctors and nurses came together with a view to developing hospice services for the people of Galway city and county, as no such services existed there at the time.
There is no charge to patient or family for any of the services provided by the Hospice but the running of the services depends on the generosity and goodwill of the public to fund the Home Care Service, Day Care Service, Bereavement Support Service and Educational Facility. Combined, these services cost in excess of €1.5 million per annum to provide and must be raised by the Hospice.
As well as running a golf competition we are also organising a raffle and would be very grateful if anybody would like to support the fundraiser by purchasing raffle tickets which are on sale in Hughes SuperValu.
We have some superb prizes on offer with 1st prize sponsored by Corrib Oil for €500 worth of home heating oil and 2nd prize of a €250 voucher from Hughes SuperValu as well as many more prizes.
