MCOI Help Cork City Hospitals Children’s Club :

The Mini Club of Ireland have a long standing collaboration with The Cork City Hospitals Children’s Club who are such a great charity which was founded in 1992 by a small group of volunteers who took a group of deserving children on the trip of a lifetime to Lap Land.

Since then, the club has gone from strength to strength and now has over 40 volunteers.

Throughout the year, the Cork City Hospitals Children’s Club brings sick and deserving children from CUH, Mercy Hospital, St. Gabriel’s and the Cork Deaf Association on numerous trips, as well as hosting many fun and exciting events such as this one that The Mini Club of Ireland help out with every year : Christmas at Fota.

Sarah Edwardes was the main Mini Club member who organises this event every year. Below is Sarah’s write up on the event.

Well done guys! That’s it over for another year! We had an amazing turnout over the last two days…. The best we have ever seen at this event! It is a difficult event to plan as I know people work during the week but a huge thank you to everyone who made it and switched hours or got the day off etc! I hope it was worth it and I’m sure it was an eye opener for a lot of us to see how one day out can put a smile of the childrens’ faces – a break away from the hospital ward! The charity do amazing work and I’m sure I speak for everyone here, that I am glad to able to be a part of it. We got a great mention on 96fm which was a proud moment for the club and we were also lucky to have a new mini countryman from Kearys (thanks Sean!) Also a super thanks to Gerry for coming all the way down from Dublin to take part (enjoy your adventure up the Healy Pass!) And of course, I couldn’t fail to mention Chris Blackham and his now infamous stretch limo- thanks Chris – the estates of ballincollig didn’t know what hit them! So thanks again everyone and if anyone has some photos or videos , upload them please! Thanks, Sarah.
