The west of Ireland’s children’s cancer charity CD’s Helping Hands has been rebranded and will be known as Hand in Hand.
This vital charity which works closely with Donegal families was set up more than five years ago to support the families of children diagnosed with childhood cancer.
In this time, the demand for its services has grown significantly. The demand has also spread geographically and the charity now supports families of children in most counties along the western seaboard of the country.
The new name Hand in Hand is reflective of the supportive approach the charity takes with all those with whom it works. The new logo and brand incorporates a bright, cheerful, and hopeful motif of children at play – which communicates to those in need of the services and those who wish to fundraise for the charity – that there is very often, thankfully, light at the end of the tunnel.
Hand in Hand is dependent on the fundraising of volunteers and partner organisations for its survival, and with demand for its services growing the need for financial support has never been more critical. The charity already helps families in Donegal, Mayo, Sligo, Galway, Clare, Leitrim, Roscommon and Limerick but would really like to be in a position to further increase the level of support in these areas. Volunteers and partners in these counties will play a vital role in the growth and development of the charity, and Hand in Hand is always delighted to have more people involved.
