Twins say thanks

Formerly conjoined twins Hassan and Hussein Benhaffhaf with their mother and Dr Pat Kiely

IT was special day for formerly conjoined twins Hassan Benhaffhaf and his brother Hussein when they presented a cheque to a charity run voluntarily by dedicated doctors and nurses.

The little fighters, who were accompanied by their mother Angie, made the donation to orthopaedic surgeon Pat Kiely, one of the founders of the charity Straight Ahead, which provides vital spinal surgery to children who are on public waiting lists.

Hassan was operated on by the doctor through Straight Ahead in May, and his grateful mum helped organise 'Ladies Wear Red for Straight Ahead Lunches' for the charity.
