Galway Hospice receives support on an ongoing basis from students and their teachers from all over Galway city and county. This support is important to us and we are keen to develop ongoing partnership with schools where possible.
Many schools and colleges have organised various fundraising events for us, such as No Uniform Days, Coffee Mornings, and even some more imaginative ideas such as “buying out” their last class on a Friday!!!! Many Transition Year students focus their attentions on assisting local charities such as Galway Hospice.
We find that many students, through their own extended families, have already some knowledge or experience of hospice services, and are keen to share that knowledge with their classmates and “promote” hospice as a worthy cause. Apart from the clear understanding that they are helping an important and widely-respected service, we can also provide a fuller experience for the students by facilitating a visit to the hospice, to include talks from staff on the various elements of the service, and how it is funded. Where it is not feasible for students to visit the hospice, we can arrange for a member of staff (where possible one of our Clinical Nurse Specialists) to visit the school/college and give an educational talk as well as show a video on some of the services provided by the Hospice.
Below are a very small selection of the many schools and colleges who have supported Galway Hospice down through the years.
