Hats warm heads – and hearts


STAFF at Crumlin Hospital say they were “overwhelmed” by a random act of kindness from a stranger who left a bag of hand-knitted hats for premature babies.

The little hats are just a couple of inches long. A note left with them said: “Enclosed find hats for premi-babies that my mam knit. I hope you can make use of them, regards, Marie.”

“We are overwhelmed by this lovely gesture,” said the hospital’s Head of Communications, Fiona O’Malley.

“We have the most amazing supporters who do great fundraisers for us including abseils, mini marathons, cake sales, fundraiser cycles or by arranging a crazy hair day or no uniform day in their schools.

There are so many ways that people give back and help us

“There are so many ways that people give back and help us fund life-saving equipment, ground-breaking medical research and wraparound support services.

“Every so often, we see something like this and it really make us smile in the office. We don’t know anything about the person who sent in these hats, but we all want to thank them from the bottom of our hearts

“People who want to help us support some of Ireland’s sickest children can donate directly on our website at cmrf.org/donate.”
