Cheque for €4,500 presented to Féileacáin
The fruits of quite a bit of hard work were handed over to a worthy cause recently as a local group presented a cheque for €4,500 to Féileacáin.
Féileacáin (Stillbirth and Neonatal Death Association of Ireland) was founded to offer support to anyone affected by the death of a baby during pregnancy or shortly after. The organisation was formed by a group of bereaved parents who supported each other and have now set themselves the task of formally supporting others in similar situations across the country.
Locally Margaret Walker and her team of volunteers have done great work for the organisation, raising money through events such as sponsored walks, coffee mornings and church gate collections. They were delighted with the amount raised and were even more delighted to hand over the fruits of their labour to Trevor and Krystle Hunt from Féileacáin.
'We would like to offer a very sincere thank you to each and every person that had any hand, act or part in raising this money for such a worthy cause,' said Margaret. 'We're delighted with the level of generosity shown.'
