Pyjama Day Friday 8th March 2013:

This year National Pyjama Day will take place on Friday 8th March. We have lots of fun activities planned for this day including Pyjama Games, Arts & Crafts, a movie and popcorn and bedtime stories & songs. Parents are asked to make a small donation to this very worthy cause on the day. Pyjama Day is now in its 9th year and has so far raised over €1.5 million for children’s charities in Ireland. Pyjama day 2013 will be take place in aid of the Irish Hospice Foundation’s Children’s Hospice Homecare Programme. In Ireland today it is estimated that 1,400 children are living with life-limiting illness in Ireland. There are about 350 child deaths every year – the majority in the first year of life. Under a five-year programme the Irish Hospice Foundation has worked closely with the Department of Health & Children and the HSE to develop the Children’s Hospice Home Care Programme which offers support to families and professionals who are caring for seriously ill children in their own homes. Part of this programme is the appointment of a network of 8 outreach nurses who provide advice and support to parents and other professionals involved in the care of very sick children at home. As a direct result of the monies raised from National Pyjama Day the IHF are now able to fund 5 out of the 8 outreach nurses. Further information is available on the Irish Hospice Foundation’s leaflet on their work with children with life-limiting conditions.
