MU members respond to Baby Unit appeal

Friday May 2nd 2008

MU Diocesan President Moira ThomAn appeal to Connor MU members from the Baby Unit at the Royal Victoria Hospital has received a very positive response.

Staff at the unit issued an appeal for little quilts and tiny cotton dresses for premature babies earlier this year.

Connor Diocesan President Mrs Moira Thom said: “I'm  delighted  to  say  that  the  project  has  been  well  received  by  members  and  I  have  no  doubt  will  produce  stock  for  the  unit.

“We  featured  it  at  Spring  Council  in  April  (giving  details  of  size,  material  etc)  and  interviewed  a  nurse  from  the  unit  who  talked  about  how  the  quilts  are used.  I  am  aware  of  a  pack  of  nine quilts  given  to  us  this  week.”

Moira added: “We  will  be  organising  a  visit  to  the  unit  at  the  Royal  very   soon  to  hand  over  whatever  number  we  have  by  then.”
