We are very fortunate to also be holding a raffle for a painting by the acclaimed self-taught painter Matt Lamb and would like to thank the Lamb family for their generous donation”.
The Children’s Appeal was established to improve services and facilities in the Children’s Unit of the CUH which provides services for children from all over Munster. Each year, 7,500 children, from 2 days old to 16 years of age are admitted to the Children’s Unit at CUH, 5,000 attend the Children’s Day Unit and 10,000 are seen in the out-patient department – making it one of busiest Children’s Units in the country.
