Heart Appeal

Our Mater Heart Appeal is our longest running appeal raising funds each year to fund the services offered in The Mater Hospital's Heart House. Over the last four years our appeal has focussed on raising awareness of Sudden Adult Death Syndrome and raising money for a Family Heart Screening Clinic based in Heart House on Eccles Street.

Every February for one week an army of volunteers take to the streets and shopping centres of Ireland to sell red heart badges for the Mater Heart Appeal. We are always looking for new volunteers so if you have just 2 hours to spare to help sell badges please contact us. Alternatively if you think your school or work place could help with fundraising during this special week get in touch.

"We really are delighted that the Family Heart Screening Clinic is now a reality. However we do still need to fundraise to provide the clinic with much-needed equipment and to develop the clinic to ensure as many families as possible who are affected are screened here at The Mater Hospital."

Mary Moorhead, Chief Executive
