“Having recently visited and supported several children’s hospices in the UK, we greatly admire the incredible work that these organisations carry out”, said Amy’s father, Mitch. “LauraLynn House was officially opened in September this year and is the first children’s hospice in Ireland. We are delighted to be supporting them and we are really looking forward to our visit this week, so we can see firsthand the work that is being done and also hopefully meet some of families that are being helped there”.
CEO Philomena Dunne of the Children’s Sunshine Home said, “like many of the families, we support Mitch Winehouse and his family who sadly know the pain of losing a child. With the help of organisations like ours we can help sick children and their families to enjoy quality time together in a home-from-home like LauraLynn House whilst ensuring they receive the best available medical care. Be it something as simple as a night’s sleep, respite or end of life care – as every family’s needs are different. We are very grateful for the wonderful support the Amy Winehouse Foundation and Universal Music are giving to LauraLynn House this Christmas.”
