About the TelethonAn increasing number of terminal cancer patients choose to spend their final months and days in their own home. Cudeca Hospice supports these patients and their families by providing HOME VISITS TEAMS. A team is made up of a doctor and nurse supported by in-house psychologists, a physiotherapist and social workers. Each team costs Cudeca €100,000 per year and there are now 6 teams, with 2 teams added in the last year. Cudeca would not exist without private donations and fundraising. Every year, TRE holds a telethon to raise funds to support Cudeca Hospice and once again the TRE TELETHON 2016 aims to raise €100,000 to cover the annual cost of one team.
How can you help?Help us reach our €100,000 target by holding a fundraising event between now and Telethon Day, no donation is too small. Each little event leading up to the Telethon brings us closer to our goal. Contact us at TRE with details of how you plan to raise the money – we’ll give you a team number and keep all our listeners and website visitors updated regularly with your progress.

This year we will be awarding a prize to the school with the most innovative fund-raising idea. Get your head teacher to agree a non-uniform day with pupils paying €2 for the privilege and proving that everybody, no matter how young, can contribute and make a difference…..and please send us your photos for Facebook.
