Afternoon tea fundraiser at Westgrove Hotel for Jack & Jill Foundation
11:03 Monday 20th of March 2017

Maggie McEldowney, the 2016 Rose of Tralee and Hugo Jellett, CEO of the Jack & Jill Children’s Foundation and Jerry Russell, General Manager of the Westgrove Hotel are shown launching the Kildare Rose Centre Afternoon Tea taking place on Saturday 1st April at 1pm in the Westgrove Hotel.

It is hoped that the event will raise money and awareness for Jack & Jill’s local and national home nursing care service for sick children and tickets are available from Elena at [email protected] for €20, and this offer includes a glass of Prosecco.

The Jack & Jill Children’s Foundation has supported 2,300 sick children nationwide with home nursing care, including 116 children in Kildare since 1997.  Twenty years on and Jack & Jill operates a nationwide service, operating 365 days a year, with no means testing and no waiting list, but the charity relies now more than ever on the support of the public to keep going.
