Appeals and Events
St James’s Day – Healing Garden Appeal
We are launching our first ever St James’s Day annual fundraiser which takes place on the 25th of July and this year we are fundraising to create a much-needed healing garden for our patients, visitors and staff here at St James’s Hospital. We need your help to raise €100,000 as we want to create a special space, an oasis of tranquillity, to help relieve the anxiety and stress often experienced by those with serious illness and to create a welcoming place of calm for our visitors and staff.

Also, as 2020 is International Year of the Nurse, we are delighted to announce that this years’ event will be a celebration of our incredible team of nurses and healthcare assistants and we will be donating the proceeds to the nursing department at St James’s Hospital.
Patient Story – Tony Doyle
“I feel like I have recovered 90% from Covid19. My lungs have still not fully recovered yet. I wasn’t expecting to be so weak afterwards. But I have to say that I wouldn’t be where I am today without the staff from St James’s hospital. Grateful patient Tony Doyle spent over a month in St James’s Hospital after developing symptoms of Covid19 in early March.
Tony has kindly shared his story with us…
