The Maternity & Infant Awards 2014

We were thrilled to attend the Maternity & Infant Awards last, Friday, 10th October. We had a wonderful afternoon at the event, hosted by TV3’s Sybil Mulcahy and Martin King and held in the Double Tree by Hilton. The awards were a great success, and everyone who attended had a lovely afternoon.

Child Hero of the Year Award 2.

We were delighted to sponsor the Child Hero of the Year award, which was won by Freya Desmond from Cork, who suffered a stroke, but through sheer determination and perseverance, regained many of the skills that she lost.

We were warmed by a speech by Susan O’ Dwyer, CEO of Make a Wish Ireland – http://makeawish.ie/ – who spoke about the work Make a Wish do and some of the wishes that they’ve granted over the past number of years.
