It’s hard to believe that Caring Matters Now Ireland is now 1 year old! The charity was registered in December 2020 and was launched virtually in March 2021 on St Patrick’s Day. The charity owes huge gratitude to Caring Matters Now UK who have been instrumental in their support to date in getting Caring Matters Now Ireland registered. Our close working relationship will ensure continuity for members. A special word of thanks to Jodi Whitehouse, Caroline Hackman and Lisa Sly for their help with the day to day running of the charity.
Since being established we have had an online gathering and also had members attending a regional gathering in Dublin and some attending a regional gathering in Northern Ireland. It was so nice after 18 months of restrictions to meet up in person.
We have received a generous donation of €6253.58 from Ladbrokes which will help us initiate our work over the coming year. We are consulting with all our partners to ensure that the work of the charity reflects the needs of those that we serve…watch this space!
I look forward to seeing what 2022 has instore for Caring Matters Now Ireland and joining in the celebrations with Caring Matters Now UK in their 25th year.
