South Tipperary General Hospital started their Christmas festivities early this week with the arrival of 300 Christmas annuals for the children’s ward.

Folens are once again teaming up with Yoobyoo – CHI volunteers in over 25 children’s wards and departments across the country, including in Clonmel, to spread some festive cheer in the lead up to Christmas through their popular annuals; Súgradh, Siamsa, Sonas and Spraoi.

Yoobyoo – CHI is a voluntary organisation working directly with children in hospitals to help them cope with illness and hospitalisation, and provides ongoing support to families. For over 40 years Yoobyoo – CHI has been committed to bringing both support and fun to sick children.

Mary O’ Connor, CEO of Yoobyoo, Children in Hospital Ireland, said their volunteers are dedicated to supporting children during their stay in hospital by providing play and recreational activities every day.
