The SUPPORT ORGANISATION FOR TRISOMY (S.O.F.T.) is a voluntary group dedicated to providing support, assistance and information for families of children diagnosed and born with Patau’s Syndrome (T13) and Edward’s syndrome (T18). Babies born with these syndromes often have serious life threatening conditions with developmental delay and a limited life expectancy.
Support is provided during pre-natal diagnosis, during the child’s life and after the child’s passing.
The primary function is to raise funds and prmote  SOFT Ireland as well as to assure families that we re there to help.

Coffee Morning and Raffle Pastoral Centre, Dunshaughlin

St Valentine’s Day clashed with Ash Wednesday this year on Wed 14th Feb may have impeded peoples ability to consume too many cakes. But helped to moderate their dietary intake just a little. Overall it ran off smoothly. Just to mention that the Raffle Sponsors were Cillin Cakes, Supervalu, Champagne Beauty, Classic Cuts etc….And everything that went into the box goes to SOFT and is much appreciated.


Coffee Mornings Meath

Jackie and Ian O’Brien report on their recent annual festive coffee afternoon.
“The coffee afternoon was in memory of our dearest sister Dolly and Dad Derry, whom we all miss very much.”


“Thanks to SOFT Ireland for all their support over the years and also for their continued support. It is great to be able to help and support SOFT in any way we can.
This year our coffee afternoon was held on the 3rd Dec 2017 at the usual venue. We all had a great day and it was great to see some of our SOFT friends attend. We raised €900 on the day.”

“We are also delighted to have two cheques for SOFT Ireland, each worth €5OO each.
These cheques were presented to us for SOFT Ireland by The Combines 4 Charity group and we are very thankful to them for thinking of SOFT Ireland. We hope that SOFT will benefit greatly from the total amount of €1900 raised.”

Combines 4 Charity was formed in 2009 by a group of 10 cereal famers.

SOFT Ireland is very grateful to Ian and Jackie who are SOST Members and to Combines 4 Charity for such a generous donation.
