Charity lunch at Aut Even raises €1,500

A great day was had by all

Staff from the Catering Department and Coffee Dock at Aut Even Hospital held a charity Christmas lunch for staff and visitors in December.

Last week, some staff from the hospital met with representatives of The Good Shephard and The Amber Women’s Refuge in Kilkenny to present cheques to them, totalling €1,500.

The Good Shepherd Centre works with homeless men and those at risk of becoming homeless, in Kilkenny and its environs.

They offer emergency accommodation, transitional housing and resettlement services with the aim of returning people to sustained independent living.

The Amber Kilkenny Women’s Refuge caters for women and children from Carlow and Kilkenny and provides a safe, secure, and supportive environment of short term emergency accommodation for those who are experiencing domestic violence.

The hospital would like to thank all the staff members and visitors who attended the charity lunch and helped Aut Even to raise funds for these two great local charities.

Aut Even Hospital is a seventy-one-bed elective, private hospital with an eighteen-bed day surgery unit.
