Nolan Transport staff have donated money raised at a fun Christmas jumper day in December to Wexford Children's Diabetes Clinic.

Wexford Children's Diabetes Clinic are a charitable organisation who have a very active parent's support group.

On December 15 every Nolan Transport staff member working in their Marshmeadows base was encouraged to get in the Christmas spirit and wear festive clothing and to bring in a donation for Wexford Children's Diabetes Clinic.

Nolan Transport staff raised a total €231.10 for the cause. The parents support group for Wexford children's diabetes clinic was set up by a group of parents to help support the children's clinic and run activities, assist with education, form a support network and to improve public awareness about Diabetes.

They organise family outings, educational meetings for services not freely available such as psychology and podiatry. The volunteers also run a family weekend to show children and teenagers that diabetes does not have stand in the way of exercise, stress and having fun.

A spokesperson for the group said; 'All of our events are run by volunteers and are funded through fundraising campaigns so we are very grateful to Nolan Transport's staff for their generosity.'
