St. Michael’s College Support for St. Vincent’s


For many years the students of St. Michael’s College have been selling Christmas trees to raise money for charities including St. Vincent’s Foundation. Through their efforts they have financed important investments in the hospital for which we are most grateful.

 This year they have again been most supportive donating €2,500 to St. Vincent’s. This money will be deployed towards a current project to purchase Cold Caps for patients undergoing chemotherapy.

 As he accepted the cheque from School Management and a large group of students John Hickey spoke to them about the work of the Foundation and the many projects that have been enabled by kindness such as they have displayed. This included the use of Cold Caps.  There followed a question and answer session where the boys showed enormous interest and empathy with the work for patients in the hospital and some of the recent initiatives.

 On behalf of our patients now and in the future we give them a great big thank you.
