Enable Ireland launched an exciting fundraiser which the charity hopes will grab the public’s interest and raise much-needed funds for their disability services.

The charity, which provides services to over 9,200 children and adults with disabilities, was granted a licence in the district court and will hold a raffle called ‘Win A House Cork’ with first prize being a 3 bedroom semi-detached fully furnished show house in Janeville, Carrigaline, Co Cork valued at €330,000. Tickets are available for €100 from www.winahousecork.ie, with the raffle being held soon after Easter on Friday, April 16 2021.

This unique raffle will offer people who are looking to buy their own home a once in a lifetime opportunity to win it! It will also appeal to parents and grandparents hoping to win a fully furnished home for their children or grandchildren. Second prize is a car worth €25,000 sponsored by Astra Construction and third prize is €5,000 cash sponsored by Right Price Tiles & Wood Flooring.

‘Win A House Cork’ has the support of one local family in Carrigaline. Ten-year-old Claire McCarthy is pictured in the launch photo.

Her Mum Joanne said: “Claire and I are delighted to help support and raise awareness of this exciting new campaign. Claire has been attending Enable Ireland Children’s Services for the past ten years. Over that time we have met so many wonderful and dedicated staff who are working tirelessly to help children like Claire to reach their full potential, realise their goals and grow their confidence. We would have been lost without them. Claire has come a long way with their help.”

The proceeds from the raffle will go towards a very special project in Cork which will benefit children with disabilities for generations to come. Over 860 children and their families attend the new ‘Lavanagh Centre’, where children’s services as provided including physiotherapy and hydrotherapy, speech and language, social work, psychology, early years education and occupational therapy. Director of Services Niall Horgan said “As a Cork person, I am very proud of the state of the art new children’s centre that we have completed but we still need to raise €1million to fund this vital new facility. We are appealing for the public’s support so that we can continue to provide our vital therapy and rehabilitative services for generations to come.”
