Winners of Haven Healthy Minds Colouring Competition!

Back in August, Haven Pharmacy launched a Healthy Minds Colouring Competition to encourage children to stretch their creativity in arts and crafts during Back to School time. The competition had two separate age categories for kids aged 4 – 7 years old and 8 – 12 years old. Entrants are invited to showcase their skills and colour in an illustration drawn by judge Don Conroy.

Pictured above is Don Conroy with the very difficult task of choosing just one winner per category.

Having encouraged many children to express their creativity over the years Don Conroy was back judging the competition again this year. Speaking at the judging of the competition Don said “I am delighted to be working with Haven again on this wonderful initiative. I cannot believe the amount of entries that have been sent in, it’s a testament to all the parents and teachers out there who are keeping up the children’s interest in the creative arts and taking a break from technology. It’s going to be a very tough decision but what I am really looking for is something that shows a lot of effort, where the entrant has put their own uniqueness to a blank canvas and made their vision come alive!”

After a long morning of deliberation, just two entrants were chosen out of thousands of entries… Here they are!

 

Winner of our 8-12 year old Category is Niamh Farrell who submitted her entry to Haven Gildeas in Kinnegad, Co. Westmeath.

Well done Niamh, Don was impressed with the level of detail and the little extras that he had to look really closely for. We love the Haven branding on the characters too! 🙂

 

Winner of our 4 – 8 year old Category is Alana Morris who submitted her entry to Haven Faheys, in Tullamore Co. Offaly.

Well done Alana, Don said that the burst of colour really caught his eye and the detailed accessories you added in were very impressive too! 🙂

These two very lucky ladies have each won a 4* family holiday to Delphi Adventure Resort which includes a 3 night stay in a Luxury Suite in Delphi Adventure Resort, full Irish breakfast each morning, 4 adventure tokens per person, free bike hire for the family on one day of choice, 3 course evening meal in The 814 Restaurant on two evenings of their choice and thermal suite experience for the parents… Enjoy your prize with the family girls!

Well done from everyone at Haven Pharmacy, until next year everybody- Keep Those Minds Healthy!

Haven Connollys Dungarvan raise over €200 for Breast Cancer Awareness

 

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Did you know that every day in Ireland 12 woman are diagnosed with breast cancer?

This month the Irish Cancer Society are encouraging women of all ages to become more breast aware. Breast awareness is about knowing what feels normal for you, that way if any changes occur you will recognise them much sooner. 1 in 10 women in Ireland will develop breast cancer during their lifetime – and early detection is your best defense against cancer!

Haven Pharmacy Connolly’s joined the Irish Cancer Society in the fight against cancer by hosting a Cups Against Breast Cancer coffee morning in Dungarvan and they managed to raise over €200 for Irish Cancer Society!

 

By hosting the Cups Against Cancer coffee morning this October Haven supported patients with breast cancer and their families. The donations from the coffee morning will fund research and support services for breast cancer patients across Ireland. You can still support this worthy cause by purchasing a pink pin in the pharmacy and placing your donations in the box on the counter.

Haven Pharmacy have teamed up with Beaumont Foundation for Knitivity 2018

Beaumont Hospital Foundation, the charity which works to encourage private donations to one of Ireland’s largest and busiest public hospitals, has launched its 2018 ‘Knitivity’ Christmas knitting campaign.

Knitivity invites people countrywide to knit one, or all, of its festive knitting projects – which include patterns for both the experienced and the novice knitter – and sell them locally or return them for sale to the hospital or through any Haven Pharmacy!

The completed knits will be sold in attractive branded gift bags, accompanied by a card identifying the name and county of origin of the knitter to acknowledge and personalise their contribution.

The price range for the completed items will be from €5 to €40 and the knits can be bought from the hospital, online at www.beaumontfundraising.ie and from the 48 Haven Pharmacies nationwide. Beaumont Hospital Foundation is encouraging knitters to sell their items locally at Christmas fairs and other festive events and remit the funds generated to the hospital. When people sign-up to ‘Knitivity’, they receive patterns, ID cards on which to provide their name and county, fabric sew on labels and a freepost mailing label. Beaumont Hospital Foundation is encouraging knitters to return their completed work to any Haven Pharmacy where possible to save on postage.

Pictured at the launch of Knitivity are Mother & Daughter Duo Geraldine Plunkett & Mary McEvoy fondly known as Mary & Biddy in Glenroe, along with Sophie Harte from Haven Pharmacy Dohertys Beaumont and Keith Brennan, Chairman of Haven Pharmacy.

The festive items make wonderful gifts and 100% of the sales price will be returned to Beaumont Hospital. If you would like to get involved you can register to receive a Knitivity pack on www.beaumontfundraising.ie, you can request one by phone on 01 – 809 2457 , or you can pick one up in your local Haven Pharmacy www.havenpharmacy.ie/find-your-haven/

 

 

Haven Moloneys raise €1600 for Irish Cancer Society

 


Haven Pharmacy Moloneys in Ballyfermot held a very important day in the pharmacy on Thursday 11th October as they celebrated the life of one of their dear colleagues, Greg who lost his battle to cancer a short while ago.

They hosted a Cups Against Cancer Coffee morning with freshly baked goods home made by all the Haven Pharmacy Staff. Customers enjoyed a treat & cup of tea with the Haven staff as they fondly remembered Greg.

There was also a Cylcathon where all the staff took their turn on the bike. Keith Brennan, who is Chairman of Haven Pharmacy, had a great time with all the customers cheering him on!

      

Great to see all the Haven Ladies in Pink to show their support for the Cups Against Cancer event..

       

   

Everybody took turns on the bike as the event ran for the full day – many miles were covered!

      

It certainly was good training for Karl our Pharmacist who is running the Dublin City Marathan and the end of the month for Irish Cancer Society. Best of luck Karl!

Thanks to everyone who donated, every cent counts!
