Bandon branch of The Irish Red Cross is pleased to announce the opening of the nomination period for the Eileen Hayes Carer of the Year Award. This perpetual plaque has been kindly donated by Denis and the Hayes family in memory of their dear wife and mother, Eileen, who passed away suddenly in 2012. The late Eileen Hayes was an active member of the Bandon Branch of the Irish Red Cross and served as Female Unit Officer. The award is presented to the voluntary carer who most exemplifies Eileen Hayes’ spirit of care, compassion and respect.

Voluntary carers do immense work in our community, much of which goes unnoticed. If you know somebody who is caring voluntarily for a family member, friend or neighbour, why not nominate them for this award? Each nominee will receive a certificate of recognition of their care from The Bandon Branch of The Irish Red Cross and the winner will receive the perpetual plaque as well as a weekend away, generously sponsored by Caulfield’s Super Valu, Bandon.

Nomination forms are available in Bandon from Caulfields Super Valu, Brookes Pharmacy, O’Donovan’s Electrical or send an email to secretary.bandoncrookstown@redcross.ie and request a form.

Closing date for return of entries is May 16. All return details on nomination form.
