Joe throws a lifeline to sick children

BROADCASTER Joe Duffy has given a lifeline to sick children by getting behind a campaign for Our Lady's Children's Hospital, Crumlin.

1 of every €15 One4all giftcards sold this month will go towards the Fix Crumlin campaign to help improve cancer and heart care for sick children.

The presenter of RTE's Liveline said: "When a child you love is sick, your priority is finding the best available care and the promise of a new children's hospital cannot divert our attention away from the children who need our care now."

The Fix Crumlin campaign has already raised €4m, but needs the same again to renovate the cardiac and cancer care facilities.
