We’re delighted to be teaming up with Hugh’s House. Hugh was a little boy who lived for 247 days, most of that time he spent in hospital. Hugh’s favourite time was when his brothers visited. He lived a happy and loved life.
His parents saw how hard it was for other families who didn’t live near Dublin and had to be separated from their sick babies and/or from their other children.
After Hugh’s death his parents decided to help families with sick babies. They opened Hugh’s House in the Summer of 2015 and offer free accommodation to parents and siblings.
One Day More are helping them with the house. We fundraise to convert old rooms into cosy family suites, dated bathrooms into clean and spacious bathrooms and much more.
Can you hold a coffee morning or a cake sale? Run a race? Shave your head? Whatever it is it will go a long way in helping families with sick and sometimes dying babies to spend as much family time together as possible.
We cook for the parents of the house and clean and garden when we can. Join us sometime.
