The Friends are volunteers who, for the last 15 years, have been enhancing the lives of the clients in St Joseph’s Hospital. They raise funds to provide some extra comforts and facilities for those who need it. For example, they have recently completely redesigned the garden, laying new walkways and ramps. They have installed a state of the art TV network system at a cost of €40,000. They have refurbished the dining room and living room, installing special Sorrento chairs. They have built a Sun Room that also doubles as an activity room. The Alzheimers Garden has been completely revamped to provide a safe outdoor space without hazards such as steps and different levels. To date the group has raised €250,000 for the hospital.

Their main fund raising event is the Golf Classic held in The County Meath Golf Club in Trim at the end of May every year.

The group is currently looking for new members. They hold 6 or 7 meetings per year. If interested please contact John Tobin on 087 7934565 or contact St Joseph’s Hospital.
