by Rachel Darcy

Following the success of their 2018 event, the Royal Hospital Donnybrook will be hosting another Family Fun Day on June 8 to raise funds for the hospital.

The event is open to all and will be packed with activities for all the family, including a five-a-side children’s football competition hosted by Beechwood FC, 800m family runs suitable for all ages along with a 3k run for more experienced runners.

Those who have worked up an appetite can then enjoy a BBQ, refreshments and a selection of baked goods at The Royal Hospital Bake-Off, as well as getting a groove on to their live DJ. There will also be a raffle, face-painting, games and lots more.

Speaking ahead of the event Oisín Quinn, Chairman of the Friends of the Royal Hospital Donnybrook, said:  “We are calling on all the families in the community of Donnybrook, Ranelagh and beyond to join us on Saturday 8th June.

“The money raised from the day will specifically go to renovating the family rooms in the Cedar and Oaks wards in the hospital.

“We want these rooms to be a sanctuary for families, allowing them the proper space and privacy they need to spend time with their loved ones in the hospital.”

The Royal Hospital’s Family Fun Day will kick off at 1.30pm and will run until 4.30pm. The cost to join the runs is €10 for adults and €5 for children.

The Royal Hospital Donnybrook is based on Bloomfield Avenue, Morehampton Road, Donnybrook, Dublin 4. To register for one of the 5k runs please visit www.friendsofrhd.ie
