Summer Fun

I couldn't think of an appropriate way of describing the joy of summer holidays spent without the restriction of travelling to Dublin three days a week for dialysis, so I thought I'd just show you instead.

Guest Post

A post with a difference today - My nephew is doing a charity cycle - one of the best ideas for a fundraiser I've heard in years it's the Tour de Picnic - a cycle from Dublin to the Electric Picnic Festival in aid of Temple St. He has a target of 500 euro to reach by late August so he's putting out the call. I appreciate times are tough so no pressure here folks but if you do have a few spare quid (rare these days I know) and you would like to see a good return on your investment, this might be just the thing for you! Or better still if you fancy fighting the summer flab and getting into training yourself, this could be a great day out and you get to attend the festival for free afterwards. Sounds like a win / win scenario to me!

Hey Guys,

I'm doing a fundraiser cycle event for charity and I have created a fundraising page on
The Temple Street Children’s University Hospital is a very worthy cause and I would very much appreciate your support in helping me to raise funds for this charity.

All proceeds go directly towards purchasing vital life-saving equipment for the Hospital, in particular
the Neurosurgery Department. I became very aware of the special work this hospital does just a few years ago when my young cousin was born without both kidneys. Through the work of the staff he was kept alive until he was able to undergo a kidney transplant operation. By donating to this charity you are contributing to the vital work needed to assist children who are suffering from life-threatening brain and spinal conditions.

Thanks in advance for your support,

Regards, David
