A Cork charity will be flying high this year as they’ve just been named as Cork Airport’s charity of the year.

Marymount University Hospital and Hospice has been named as the charity of year which includes many fundraisers like fashion shows, row-a-thons, and charity collection points in the airport’s terminal and The Loop throughout the year.

Marymount University Hospital and Hospice is a specialist palliative care centre which provides care for those with life limiting illnesses, irrespective of age or diagnosis, based on a specialist medical assessment.

The facility also offers support to families facing loss or who are bereaved.

CEO at Marymount University Hospital and Hospice, Dr Sarah McCloskey said: “Our mission is to provide excellent care, showing compassion and respect to each of our patients.

“As we are increasingly funded on a donation basis, the support from Cork Airport will assist us hugely in maintaining our high standards of care to those with the most complex of needs.”

Managing Director at Cork Airport Niall MacCarthy said: “We are delighted to welcome Marymount as our charity partner for 2019. This is a very important charity, one which many across Munster would know about, and experienced first-hand the excellent support and care this facility provides its patients and their families.”
