Fin­gal­lians busy help­ing Bum­bleance

Fingal Independent - - OPINION -

KIND-HEARTED Fin­gal­lians have once again show their gen­er­ous na­ture as they came out to sup­port a very wor­thy cause.

As part of Mother­care’s part­ner­ship with BUM­BLEANCE, the na­tional chil­dren’s am­bu­lance ser­vice, the re­tailer’s store in the Pavil­ions Shop­ping Cen­tre host a fundraiser.

The BUBMLEANCE vis­ited the cen­tre and lo­cal peo­ple had the op­por­tu­nity to take a look in­side the BUM­BLEANCE. A to­tal of €1,122.25 was raised in store on the day and Mother­care would lie to thank all of those who do­nated their money.

BUM­BLEANCE is the world’s first fully in­ter­ac­tive Chil­dren’s Na­tional Am­bu­lance Ser­vice, specif­i­cally de­signed for and tai­lored to chil­dren. BUM­BLEANCE en­sures the safe trans­porta­tion of sick chil­dren be­tween their home and pae­di­atric hos­pi­tals, hos­pices, na­tional treat­ment cen­tres and respite cen­tres na­tion­wide.

They also pro­vide a unique and vi­tal ser­vice through their An­gel Trips, the final jour­ney a child takes on earth be­fore he or she grows their An­gel Wings.

As the char­ity re­ceives no Gov­ern­ment fund­ing, these days are vi­tal to con­tinue help­ing chil­dren across Ire­land.

This is the first step in na­tional fundrais­ing cam­paign that rolls out in 2017.

Cus­tomers can cur­rently pur­chase the BUM­BLEANCE bee in all Mother­care stores. 100% of the sale from the bees goes to BUM­BLEANCE,

The much-needed funds raised in Swords will help to­wards a tank of fuel for BUM­BLEANCE cost­ing €100; a new tyre for the BUM­BLEANCE cost­ing €150; a new ipad for th BUM­BLEANCE cost­ing be­tween €300 and €700; or the spon­sor­ship of an An­gel Trip cost­ing 400.
