Bluebird Care Kerry/West Cork Takes Flight

The team at Bluebird Care in Kerry will take flight in a charity skydive on Saturday the 13th of June in aid of Ian’s Trust and the Alzheimer’s Society of Ireland.

Office Administrator, Carly O’Donovan, Office Manager, Trish Kavanagh and Care Supervisor, Brandy Frizuki will be taking on the charity challenge.

Kerry:West Cork Charity Skydive

Carly O’Donovan says, “Doing a charity skydive has been on my bucket list for some time. We are all too often reminded of how short our time is and I figured if I don’t start crossing things off my list in the hope of having great, unforgettable, fun moments, I would end up regretting the things I was never brave enough to try.”

The challenge has been extended to all Bluebird Care Offices across Ireland. Money raised will go to two charities. Firstly Ian’s Trust a wonderful charity who support families with children who have suffered an Acquired Brain Injury. The second is The Alzheimer’s Society of Ireland, a national charity who work across the country providing dementia specific services and supports and advocating for the rights and needs of all people living with dementia.

The jump will take place in Kilkenny on Saturday the 13th of June.

To make a donation you can send a draft/cheque form payable to either of the named charities. Send donations to Fairies Cross Medical Centre, Clounalour, Oak Park, Tralee, Co. Kerry.

Oorla Cusack, mother of Ian Cusack, has this to say about Bluebird Care who cared for Ian after his accident:

“Ian Cusack was a beautiful blue-eyed 5 year old boy who had his whole to live when he was knocked by a car in September 2008 and sustained a severe brain injury. Ian’s journey began here and lasted for four long years. He required 24-hour care for the remainder of his life.

“Bluebird Care provided a lifeline for our family after Ian’s care changed from critical to longterm care. Their staff looked after Ian in such a loving and professional way, and played a vital part in Ian’s life.
We will be forever grateful for this and are delighted to have Ian’s Trust and Bluebird Care affiliated.”
