News and events News Rushe’s SuperValu Cheque Presentation The NRH Foundation, supporting the National Rehabilitation Hospital (NRH), for adults and children, was very kindly chosen as the 2018 Charity Partner of the Rushe Family SuperValu Stores in Killiney, Dalkey, Naas and their Centra Store in Stillorgan. Each year the customers and staff of these stores are asked for nominations to their charity of the year programme and in 2018 we were delighted to hear we had been the successful charity in this process. All of these Stores spent 2018 raising vital funds and awareness to support the NRH, as both a local and national hospital. The NRH for adults and children, is a fully publicly funded hospital providing complex medical specialist rehabilitation to adults and children, who as a result of an accident, illness or injury, require rehabilitation under the Paediatric Family Centred Rehabilitation Programme The Brain Injury Programme (incl. Stroke) The Spinal Injury Programme Prosthetic, Orthotic and Limb Absence Programme The NRH Foundation is the registered charity dedicated to raising vital funds for specialist projects, equipment and research, that will help make a direct difference to the lives of the patients in the NRH. Without the help of charity partnerships like this, we would not be able to provide his vital support. Through bucket collecting, organising fundraising activities throughout the year, the selling of the NRH Cookbooks and the NRH Foundation Charity Christmas Cards, the phenomenal amount of €15,000 was raised for the Charity. These funds will make a direct and impactful difference to patients, both adults and children, in the NRH, through supporting the equipping of the new state of the art, purpose built, rehabilitation hospital currently under development. The Rushe Family Supervalu Stores also supported another fundraiser for the NRH Foundation in September 2018 – The Hines Group Cherrywood Family Fun Day and Charity 5k Run – they very kindly donated goodie bags to all those who took part in the charity 5k event on the day in aid of the NRH Foundation. Today, Shane Rushe and Mary Valentine visited the NRH to present the NRH Foundation with a cheque for €15,000. We are so grateful of this amazing generosity and for the privilege of been chosen as their 2018 Charity Partner. Thank you so much to the Rushe Family, Shane, Mary and all the staff of SuperValu Killiney, Dalkey, Naas and Centra Stillorgan, in addition to all their customers for these phenomenal funds and awareness raised for the NRH Foundation.
