Thanks from St Vincent's

While all the money is not in yet for Josie's street collection and walk in aid of the Vincent's Hospital Alzheimer Unit, we have collected €3,500 so far and hope to reach our target of €4000 by next week, writes Helen Dreelan.

The money is earmarked to develop a therapeutic kitchen in the dementia care unit for the use and benefit of the patients and residents living there. We hope to commence work on that within the next 6-8 weeks.

The kitchen will provide a much needed 'home from home' environment for the residents in our care, and it would not be possible without the generous support of all those who helped make the Saturday Bucket Collection and the Sunday Sponsored walk such a success.

Please accept our deepest gratitude to all concerned.
