Emerald's Coffee for Conor Charity Fundraiser

15th April 2016

Emerald Truck & Van held a “Coffee for Conor” morning to help raise money in aid of Féileacáin, a charity run by a group of mothers who have lost a baby through stillbirth. The event was run by Sinead Doyle, company receptionist, who recently lost her son Conor at 38 weeks.

Sinead comments “We would have never known of Féileacáin before. When I went into the hospital to have Conor, the bereavement nurse showed me a box that was on the bed. It was from the charity, and it had Conor’s hand and foot print measurements, two teddies, one for us and one for Conor and a picture of the three of us. We willl treasure it forever.”

The memory boxes are donated into hospitals by Féileacáin. Emerald is delighted to have raised over €1320 to help support this cause.
