Here you will find messages of appreciation received from those who have received grants.

‘Thank you very much for awarding me the grant. It will help me greatly throughout my last academic year’.
                                                                                                                                Aidan Campbell

‘I wish to thank you and the board for awarding me a grant in the amount of €250 to help me financially with my studies in the IT, Sligo. It is much appreciated. Many thanks again’.
                                                                                                                                 James Soden

‘Thank you very much for the kind gift you gave me. It will help me with my day to day college expenses. I’m enjoying my first year studying multimedia at DCU. The gift is especially helpful as I am having difficulty finding part time work and my grant has not yet been processed or approved’.
                                                                                                                                 Caleb O’Sullivan

‘I am delighted with the news that I have been awarded second place in the Educational Grant. I greatly appreciate this. I am currently on my hospital placement and have come across patients with HIV and liver disease, and it’s very interesting to see the role of the dietitian in helping such patients. In the future as a qualified dietician, I look forward to being able to help the Society in any way I can. I would like to thank the Irish Haemophilia Society for this grant, it makes a difference’.

                                                                                                                                 Linda Coakley

‘A big hello from Edinburgh! Just a little pre-thank you before I get my little note ready for the newsletter. I just wanted to say a huge thank you again for everything you have done to help my studies, not just this year, but in the past. I am starting to prepare a little note explaining how this grant has helped with my tuition fees and getting to and from my placement in Glasgow. Thank you all for everything you have done, and I really hope to see you all at the AGM’.
                                                                                                                                 Irene Clarke

‘I am so greatly in debt to the Irish Haemophilia Society for the grant received. This is going to greatly help me in my studies and education. If you are ever looking for someone to write a piece on how the grant helped me out in my education, I would gladly do so. I look forward to hearing from the I.H.S. in the near future, and anytime I am in the area of Dublin I will not hesitate to come and visit. Thanks again. Go raibh maith agat’.

Fergal Egan

‘I am delighted to receive a cheque for €500 as part of the Margaret King Educational Scholarship. I would like to thank you and the members of the board for selecting me as a recipient of the grant. It is greatly appreciated and will be very useful for university expenses. I am settling in well into life in Jordanstown and enjoying the physiotherapy course. I am looking forward to starting placements in the New Year. I will certainly be in contact with the Society if I am available to help with the children’s programmes at the conferences. I am sorry that I have been unable to attend the conferences since I finished secondary school, as I have been kept busy with my studies in Sligo and now in Jordanstown. Hopefully, my schedule will allow me to attend one soon’.
