Milford Hospice Friends (MHF) was established initially in 1983 to support the Little Company of Mary with their work at Milford Hospice, through the organising and running of fundraising events. In more recent years, MHF also supports the associated work of Milford’s Palliative Day Care and Hospice at Home services.
The functions of the Milford Hospice Friends are varied, but centre around information sharing, relationship building and raising much needed funds to meet the specific special or ongoing service needs of Milford Hospice. Initiating and organising fundraising activities is by far the key role of the Friends and some of the scheduled fundraising events include: Sunflower Days, Milford Fair Hospice Fund Day, Ireland’s Biggest Coffee Morning and Light up a Memory which captures the attention, hearts and funds of the community.
MHF provide an invaluable resource in support of the work of Milford Hospice and as such is recognised as a committed group of individuals who bring a unique contribution in support of its service delivery.
All members of Milford Hospice Friends subscribe fully to the ethos / philosophy of the Little Company of Mary, whose mission is summarised as follows:
- To bring Christ’s healing presence to all by ministering to their physical, emotional and spiritual needs
- To provide care through service of the highest standard, with deep reverence for the dignity of the human person being cared for without regard to the status, colour, sex, race or creed
- Since God is the author of all human life to cherish and protect that life from its beginning and at all stages until the moment of death.
