Cuan is sincerely grateful to the Cavan Christmas Dash for choosing it as one of its charities and raising the amazing sum of €8,317. It was a great community event which generated a wealth of goodwill to all.
The Christmas 2015 donation helped fund the Cavan branch of CFI branch's contribution of €450,000 to the €1.1 million project that the branch, in partnership with the HSE, is presently pursuing at Cavan General Hospital. Two distinct areas within the paediatric department of the hospital are being converted into single isolation en suite bedrooms for people with Cystic Fibrosis.
