Hooves 4 Hospice

Thank you for visiting our website.

The purpose of our fundraising project is to raise vital funds towards the cost of building the planned Midland Regional Hospice.

The project involves the donation and rearing of animals by farmers willing to donate and rear an animal or to rear a donated animal and donate the proceeds of the sale of the animal to our Hooves4Hospice project.

Launched in January 2020, 568 animals were registered with the project at the end of December 2021.  Of that number 220 had been sold at an average price of  €1,183. The estimated value of the fund at the end of 2021 was €760,000.  

That figure was arrived at by adding the figures for sales to date, cash donations received, the estimated sale value of the animals currently being reared less expenses incurred and paid for from cash donations received.

Our target is to raise €1 million. Based on our experience to date we are confident of being able to meet our target. Farmers across the Midlands and beyond have been extraordinarily generous and the community generally is most supportive of our fundraising campaign.

 The decision of the Minister for Health, Mr. Stephen Donnelly TD, in December 2021, to allocate €1million  progress the development of a Midland Regional Hospice in Tullamore means, in effect, that this vital project has become a reality.

The Hooves 4 Hospice project is organised and managed by the members of Tullamore Lions Club in an entirely voluntary capacity.

Please peruse our website and consider supporting our project in whatever way you can.

Your support will be greatly appreciated.
