Support Hospice

Laois Hospice is a charitable and totally voluntary organisation, which helps support quality care and counselling services for the terminally ill and their families. We rely soley on the generosity of the general public to sustain the level of service which we provide.

Each year, hundreds of people take part in hospice-related fundraising activities. Since our foundation, countless numbers of events have taken place, including vintage rallies, sponsored walks, sponsored sporting events (GAA/Rugby etc.),table quizzes, golf classics, head shaves, and mini-marathons, to mention but a few.

The Hospice also has 'bottle collections' in local businesses in Laois, and we thank the businesspeople of the county for their unwavering support.

If you would like to make a private donation to Laois Hospice, please do not hesitate to contact any of the officers of the Committee. Their contact details can be found here.
