TV’s favourite personality Miriam O’Callaghan showed she’s willing to go to infinity and beyond for a good cause.
The radio and television presenter showed her superhero side as she dressed up as Superwoman in a photo shoot to publicise Children’s Hospice Week at LauraLynn, a children’s hospice and residential care centre for adolescents that O’Callaghan is a patron of.
Superheroes Jacqui Ellis, Maria Burke, Ned Butler Bevan Ritchie, Fiona Rock, Blaize Whelan and Paddy the dog also took part in the super photo shoot.
LauraLynn has also announced it is trialling a new at home service called LauraLynn@Home - the new service will bring all of the expertise and care that children currently receive at LauraLynn into the family home on a 12-month trial basis.
This service would mean sick children and their families can be cared for in their own homes. This new service which could provide care for approximately 50 families will cost around €800,000. The extra money has all come from publically donated funds with the majority of this coming from the recent Half Million Half Marathon event organised by Ray DArcy and Today FM.
The Pilot Programme will be available in: HSE Dublin North-East: Louth, Meath, Cavan, Monaghan, North County Dublin and HSE Dublin Mid-Leinster: Kildare, Wicklow, Westmeath, Laois, Offaly, Longford, South County Dublin for thr next 12 months.
