The children’s ward in Letterkenny General Hospital received some Christmas magic early this year, with the arrival of 300 Folens Christmas Annuals this week as a part of an overall national donation to hospitals across the country.

Following the success of last years partnership, Folens have once again teamed up with volunteers in over 20 children’s wards and departments across the country, including here with the Friends of Letterkenny General Hospital, to spread some festive cheer to children in hospital in the lead up to the Christmas season.  

This special delivery to the children’s unit in Letterkenny General Hospital is one of many merry donations that will be made by the Folens team to children’s wards across the country this week, with the total donation this year worth over €32,000.

Caroline Meaney, Folens Territory Manager for Donegal said; “The staff at Letterkenny General are amazingly dedicated and we are delighted to help in any way we can to bring some happiness to the children’s ward for Christmas. Christmas is a particularly tough time to be in hospital and if our Christmas Annuals brighten up a child’s day then that is a wonderful thing.”
