CuddleCot Cheque Donation


Fiona and Hugh Jordan kindly presented a cheque for £3,800 to staff from Royal-Jubilee Maternity Hospital (RJMH) on
Wednesday 9th August 2017 in memory of their son, Aodhan, who died on 12th September 2010.  The family raised the
money through a fun run, local sponsorship and other activities.  The run was completed by Jim McAlea (Fiona's father)
and Karen Kavanagh (Fiona's sister). 

The much needed donation will be used to buy a CuddleCot, which enables parents to keep their baby close during the
difficult grieving process.  It will also help to fund the refurbishment of the Quiet Room in RJMH, enhancing the quality of
this essential service.
