She said:“We have outgrown our current database and have ambitions that will see us grow even further. We decided to look for a product that would support that growth and at the same time streamline some of our processes; a solution that would continue to develop as we do. We also wanted a system that would bring all our different functions into one place to reduce duplication and therefore save time and money.“We chose Harlequin because it is very user friendly in its design and is competitively priced.

They clearly have pride in their product and are therefore keen to ensure they support the latest developments that impact upon their clients, such as changes with Gift Aid.”Founded in 1986, Harlequin supports 275 not-for-profit organisations across the UK.

She was then put in adult nappies as the hospital didn’t have sufficient staff to help her use the toilet.The nurses themselves were so upset and frustrated over the conditions in the UHL emergency department last week that one of them even urged the woman’s granddaughter to contact the press to help highlight the issue.The HSE apologised for the delays experienced by patients last week, but apologies are only words, words that we have heard time and time again in recent years, and they mean nothing if they are not followed up with actions that will prevent these situations from happening again.

Arkansas’ priciest home lists near Fayetteville football stadium

(Getty, fanatics — specifically, those who are dedicated to the University of Arkansas Razorbacks (go Hogs!) — may want to take a look at the state’s priciest home.The compound at 400-410 North Oliver Road sits directly across the street from the team’s home stadium, Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium and is listed for $12 million, making it the priciest property currently listed for sale in the state, according to Dirt.The current owners bought the property about three decades ago for $35,000 and set it up as an investment to rent out during football games. It has three structures totaling 11,320 square feet, with 18 bathrooms and 21 bedrooms.The main house was built in 1966 and renovated in 2013. It has seven bedrooms, six baths, and two kitchens. The two other residences each have multiple kitchens, game rooms and spaces kitted out for entertaining. There’s tons of parking for tailgating and guests, a heated pool and even a treehouse.The property appears to be something of a local institution, at least according to the listing, which calls it an “iconic game-day destination… known and loved by all.”[Dirt] — Dennis Lynch Luxury Real EstateResidential Real Estatelast_img read more
