Ambulances fundraising appeal!

By February 24, 2021No Comments

The Candle of Grace charity recently received their 3rd ambulance from the Order of Malta in February. The third vehicle was from the Order of Malta Castlebar.  The first two ambulances were kindly donated to the Charity by Cashel unit in Co.Tipperary and Killarney unit in Co. Kerry.  We are truly thankful to the Order of Malta for supplying us with these ambulances which will serve the Chernobyl area. 

Fleet Officer John Corcoran and Officer in Charge Liam McHugh handed over the keys of Ambulance No. 3 to Catherine Canny from Candle of Grace. 

                                                                                 

We now have three ambulances at our Charity`s base in Leitir, Islandeady . Our mission now is to raise enough funds to transport the ambulances to the Chernobyl region as quickly as possible as they are much needed.  Some of the medics and volunteers in Ukraine are driving around in dilapidated and dangerous vehicles which are in a bad state of disrepair.  

We have planned an online St Patrick’s Fun Quiz and we are looking at other fundraising options. Anyone who wishes to donate to our Ambulance appeal can do so on our payment options on the website.
