The Amy Winehouse Foundation will visit Ireland this week to present the LauraLynn Children's Hospice with a cheque for €25,000. Mitch Winehouse, the father of soul and r'n'b singer Amy Winehouse, and patron Barbara Windsor will travel to Ireland to hand over the money raised from Amy's last album Lioness: Hidden Treasures/
Mitch Winehouse visited the Irish hospice last year and was so impressed by the work there that he vowed to return and make a donation,
"We were moved and in awe of the great work the Hospice does for kids in Ireland," explains Mitch Winehouse, "Our Foundation is in place to help charities and projects that make a difference and nowhere is this illustrated so well as at Laura Lynn. We are honoured to be able to make this donation in Amy's name and know that she would be proud too."
LauraLynn is Ireland's first Children's hospice, caring for children from birth to 18 years old with life limiting conditions and helping their families to cope.
