We have dedicated this area to pay special tribute to the extremely generous people who have made a contribution to CRY. It is because of these amazing people that CRY is able to keep our doors open as we do not receive any government funding. All at CRY would like to express our sincerest thanks to everyone who has provided us with support.
Pictured recently in Tesco Ireland - Newcastlewest, Limerick is Clare O'Donovan (Monagea) collecting €536.23 as part of the Community Fund. Pictured with Clare are Donal Claffey, Store Manager, Amanda Dalton, Checkout Manager and Sara McMullan, Stock Control Manager.
How does the Community Fund work? It all starts with the blue tokens that you get in your local Tesco when you’re paying for your weekly shop. At the end of each eight week period, the tokens are counted and up to €1,000 is shared proportionally between the three good causes in each store on display according to the number of tokens.
So THANK YOU Clare for nominating Cry in Newcastlewest and thank you to everybody who supported Cry by donating their "blue chips" to Cry.
A massive THANK YOU to the Bon Secours Hospitals Ireland and especially the staff in Tralee who nominated Cry to receive funding through their Community Initiative Programme.
We were delighted to receive today the fantastic sum €2,500.00 based on staff nominations and we appreciate your acknowledgement of our work - so THANK YOU to all who nominated and supported Cry.
Wednesday 25th May was the night the students of the SRC Music Department lit up the Marketplace Theatre, performing a variety of musical styles. With a record attendance the audience were not disappointed. Each year the Music Department stage their Showcase, all proceeds from the event are donated to Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY – Ireland).
The concert is a culmination of the students’ studies; they staged the whole event from technical support, performance and promotion.
This year we were delighted to have the Deputy Lord Mayor Brendan Curran, Michael Greene, Chairman of CRY and his wife and Charity board member Marie Greene, Jimmy Gildernew and Anne and Tommy Fegan, whose support means so much to the College and to the students.
This year awards were given to 4 students:
The professionalism displayed was outstanding. The Students are certainly well equipped to move to the next stage of their journey in education and the world of life, work and play and are excellent ambassadors for their college and the creative studies department
The evening was directed by Paddy Craig, Course Co-ordinator. “What a fantastic night our students excelled on every level”.
The acts performed a wide genre of music and highlighted the varying talents of the music students. The 2nd year students wrote, composed and performed a special performance called 7 which was pre-recorded onto a CD by the Yr 2 students who designed, produced and promoted the CD on the night priced £5. All proceeds donated to CRY.
Some of the team (Mary, Rosa, Laura & Una (Dietetics) are pictured at the Centre presenting the funds to Lucia Ebbs, CRY.
The CCU staff of Tallaght Hospital led by Siobhan Lacey took part in the 2016 VHI Women’s Mini Marathon in aid of Cry. Siobhan encouraged her colleagues Laura Harmon, Mary McDonald, Linda Baxter, Jingli Li Rosa Gonzales and Eden Bonificio to join #teamCry and the team raised the incredible sum of €1,100.00 for Cry.
Sincere thanks to the CCU staff for supporting Cry and thanks to their family, colleagues & friends who sponsored & donated so generously.
