INTO Annual Member's Draw 2021

Children’s Health Foundation (formally Children’s Medical & Research Foundation) - purchase your ticket before Friday 11 June at 1p.m.

Dear Colleagues

This is a difficult year for many of us, but particularly for organisations which rely on fundraising to maintain their work. In this context we make this special plea to you to participate in our annual raffle in aid of the Children’s Health Foundation (formally Children’s Medical and Research Foundation). The foundation supports the great work in Temple Street, Crumlin, Tallaght and Connolly hospitals.

We ask all our members to please support INTO’s charity partner by purchasing a ticket for our annual members’ draw and be in with a chance of winning one of the following prizes; • 1st Prize – €10,000 • 2nd Prize - €3,000 • 3rd & 4th Prizes - €1,500 • 5th & 6th Prizes - €1,000 • 7th, 8th, 9th & 10th Prizes - €500

Tickets cost €10 each and multiple tickets can be purchased. The closing date has been extended to Friday 11 June, 2021 @1p.m. Winners will be picked at 3p.m. on Friday 11 June. The proceeds from the draw will go towards a three-year research project into sickle cell disease in children.

About Sickle Cell Disease (SCD) & the Research Project: Children with sickle cell disease (SCD) are highly susceptible to painful crises such as anemia and stroke. Unfortunately, there is currently a limited understanding of the molecular events that contribute to these vaso-occlusive crises (VOC) in SCD patients. In developing countries, half of children with SCD die before reaching five years of age and less than 10% actually survive to adulthood. Even in developed countries, SCD continues to be associated with significant pediatric morbidity. For more information on SCD and on this research project please click on the INTO website.

Thank you for choosing to support sick children in Ireland and for ensuring every child gets the very best chance.

Please note this draw is limited to INTO members, however we have provided a “Donate Only” facility below for members who wish to make contributions without purchasing a ticket and/or for school staff who are not INTO members. If you have any queries, please contact Georgina Glackin at
