HSE Media Release: 27 November 2019
The Friends of Inbhear na Mara committee formed in April 2018 for the sole purpose of fundraising for the purchase of a new wheelchair accessible bus for the ten residents of Inbhear na Mara.
The funds were raised through extremely generous donations from families of past and present residents and local businesses, support of the Parents & Friends Association, and donations from a sponsored run and Kilimanjaro climb.
In addition, a very successful 5K organised by staff in the unit and sponsored by local businesses was attended in large numbers by the local community.
The HSE would like to extend their thanks and appreciation to everyone who contributed to the purchase of the new bus. This bus will greatly enhance the lives of the residents of Inbhear na Mara.
A special word of gratitude goes to the Friends of Inbhear na Mara committee, Brian McCabe, Lynda McCabe, Peggy Gallagher and Janice McNelis and staff members at Inbhear Na Mara, unit, Martina Monaghan, Danny Tourish, Geraldine Rooney and Louise O'Grady.
