DUNGLOE Community Hospital, in partnership with lead sponsor Randox Teoranta,is delighted to announce a fundraising extravaganza featuring a one-off performance by Daniel O’Donnell and special guests.
Country Music Sunday will take place on 17 May 2015, featuring an exclusive two-hour concert by world-renowned country music star Daniel O’Donnell and his band.
In what promises to be a great day out for all the family, Country Music Sunday will include a host of activities, with arts and craft stalls, BBQ, bouncy castles and other events for children.
Daniel O’Donnell, whose mother Julia sadly passed away at the Dungloe Community Hospital last year, is taking time out of an 18 month break to perform at the exclusive concert.
This will be the country music star’s only concert anywhere in the world in 2015 and tickets are already in big demand from right across the globe. Dungloe Community Hospital provides a vital service to the Dungloe and Rosses community, caring for sick and infirm patients.
At the heart of the community hospital is the palliative care suite which provides vital end-of-life care for terminally ill patients, and support for their families throughout the highly emotional time.
The purpose of the fundraiser is to refurbish the palliative care centre, to upgrade medical equipment and refurbish bedrooms, bathrooms and common-room areas.
Patrick Boyle/Thomas Costello of the organising committee, said: “When terminally ill patients come to the palliative care suite, it’s important to make every moment they have left with their families memorable ones.
“We want to make sure that patients receive the best possible medical care, situated in uplifting and peaceful surroundings, to ensure
their last days are the best we can possibly make them.”
Dr Peter FitzGerald, Managing Director of event sponsor Randox Teoranta, said: “As a company whose raison d’etre is to improve health globally, we are delighted to be part of this important fundraising event and to support the local community.
“The Dungloe Community Hospital is a critical community asset and it deserves all our support.”
