St Luke’s Charity and Home annual fundraiser returns this month

Vital funds are needed in order to maintain existing services.

St Luke’s Home, the leading provider of residential care for older people in Cork specialising in dementia care, will host their Annual Corporate Lunch for both corporates and individuals in the Maryborough Hotel on October 13th.

The event, which hasn’t been held since 2019, is proudly sponsored by Davy Group and will begin with a reception at 12:15pm followed by lunch served at 1pm. The annual lunch will feature the CEO of Irish Mainport Holdings, Mr. Dave Ronayne, as the guest speaker on the day, with Irish Mainport Holdings actively involved in all things shipping in the Port of Cork and elsewhere over the last 65 years.

The primary aim of the event is to raise vital funds for St Luke’s Charity and Home – in addition to celebrating what is a special landmark anniversary for the care home. All funds raised will be put towards supporting all of St Luke’s services, but in particular it will support the Dementia unit and the local free Community Dementia Service.

This service is part of St Luke’s Home’s Charitable Outreach and Partnership Programme and provides information, advice and personalised support and acts a single point of contact for people with Dementia and their families.

St. Luke’s Home Cork continuously provides residential care for 128 residents and 100 Daycare clients every week, as well as training for the wider health care sector through their purpose-built Education and Research Centre – Northridge House Education and Research Centre at St Luke’s Cork.

Through the centre, St. Luke’s has developed links with University College Cork and Queen Margaret University in Edinburgh, and this is in alignment with their wider strategic plan to provide a best-in-class education and research hub for Dementia Care.

CEO of St Luke’s Home Tony O’Brien paid tribute to the generosity of businesses and the people of Cork over the years for consistently helping them to reach their fundraising requirements, mentioning:

“This year is an important year for the charity and the home as we celebrate our 150th anniversary. It is a significant achievement to continue to be a leader in the care of older people after such a long time and it is down to our residents, families, staff, volunteers, supporters, and friends.
