The Crann Centre were honoured and grateful to join 29 other Irish charities in recently receiving a significant donation from The Hospital Saturday Fund (HSF) at a recent reception hosted at University College Cork.
In total, €140,000 was donated to the charities at the event, including €4,000 to the Crann Centre.
The event was attended by the Deputy Lord Mayor of Cork, Cllr. Des Cahill, and special guest, former Ireland and Munster Rugby International, Marcus Horan.
Crann Centre founder Kate Jervey said of the event, “On behalf of the entire Crann team I want to thank the HSF for the lovely reception and presentation evening at UCC. The experience was a great privilege for me and for the Crann Project to be included in such a worthy group of charitable organizations.
“It was so interesting to learn more about HSF and the outstanding vision behind the charitable work done by HSF. It was also very meaningful to have the opportunity to meet representatives of the other charities that were awarded donations. I found sharing ideas and information with so many like-minded people inspiring.
“The generous funds donated to the Crann Project by The Hospital Saturday Fund will soon be hard at work improving the lives of persons with spina bifida and their families.”
Upcoming programmes at the Crann Centre include Wheelchair Skills Training in January, as well as the Breaking Barriers Performing Arts School which is focused on providing a learning and creative opportunity for children and teenagers with a physical disability.
