Health Charities Invited to Make Funding Application

The Hospital Saturday Fund, which makes donations to hospitals, hospices and medically associated charities for research and care and to individuals whose health problems have caused severe financial stress, is now inviting applications from Irish charities and individuals. 

The Hospital Saturday Fund was founded in 1873, at a time when poverty, overcrowding and ill-health were prevalent and little help was available for those needing costly hospital care.
