Donations made easy with the Amber Springs.
The Amber Springs Hotel in Gorey is delighted to announce a charity partnership with the Marie Keating Foundation.
The hotel has instigated a programme of activity to help raise cancer awareness and provide a platform for donations to support the cancer foundation’s services. Amber Springs will host a number of free cancer information meetings, have dedicated Marie Keating Foundation trains at each of the seasonal Amber train events, provide breaks for families with a terminally ill family member. The hotel has also recently introduced a new therapeutic range of products and treatments into the Cocoon Spa for people who are or have suffered from cancer.
By 2020, cancer is predicted to affect 1 in 2 people during their lifetime. Speaking at the launch of the charity partnership, Eibhear Coyle from the Amber Springs said, “No one is immune from cancer and the hotel is fortunate to be able to help support the Marie Keating Foundation in their endeavours to assist those affected by cancer and their families. The partnership has been driven by the empathy of both the owners and staff of the Amber Springs for those affected by cancer and admiration for the work being done by the Marie Keating Foundation. We hope to raise as much funds as possible to help beat this terrible disease.”
Amber Spring will be supporting the Marie Keating Foundation in a number of ways:
* Donations – when booking via the hotels website guests will be given the option to “Add a Euro or more for the Marie Keating Foundation”
