Where The Funds Go

Thanks to you, Cork’s 96FM & C103 Frontline Legends will be supporting the Mercy University Hospital Cork, and Cork’s University Hospital Frontline legends during the current Covid-19 Appeal.

Mercy Hospital Foundation:

Funds raised in the Supporting Frontline Legends Appeal will go towards:

  • Support for our frontline staff  –
    Over the coming weeks The Mercy Team of Clinical Psychologists will be on hand to work with our front line staff to build their resilience as they work tirelessly to treat COVID-19 patients. Your donation will ensure that our staff will have the support they need. 
  • 30 Genius Thermometers
    At €130 each, these will give staff a temperature reading in 1 to 2 seconds. When treating the most seriously ill patients, every second will count.
  • Coffee Pods
    Something as simple as a warm cup of coffee will go a long way for our staff. New coffee machines have been installed around the hospital for our frontline legends as they will work around the clock over the coming weeks to save lives. Your donation will help keep these machines full, giving staff a comforting break from work when they need it most.
