To celebrate their 10th birthday, The Westgrove Hotel and Conference Centre in Clane has partnered with the Jack & Jill Children’s Foundation with a view to raising much needed funds for home nursing care for sick children in Kildare and nationwide in 2016. Over the years, Jack & Jill has supported over 1,900 families nationwide with home nursing care and respite support, including 108 families in Kildare. The plan is for staff in the hotel to do monthly fundraisers on behalf of Jack & Jill such as coffee mornings, fitness activities and a whole lot more.
‘We at the Westgrove Hotel & Conference Centre are delighted to be associated with a local charity. We wanted as part of our 10TH Anniversary to celebrate our success and give something back to what is such worthy cause. Jack & Jill appealed to us because they are so small yet have achieved so much to make such a difference to the lives of many Irish families’ – Jerry Russell, General Manager.
The Westgrove Hotel and Conference Centre Clane is owned by locally based Pat and Anne Fadden. The hotel is part of Select Hotels of Ireland and employs 34 full time local staff and 75 part time staff.
‘We are truly honoured with the association with the Westgrove Hotel and, on behalf of the families we support locally and nationally, I want to say a big thank you. This partnership is all about community helping community and I’d also like to congratulate our friends in the Westgrove Hotel on their 10th birthday celebrations. It’s great to see local hotels doing so well.‘ – Jonathan Irwin, CEO and Founder of Jack & Jill
