Year 14 students present cheque to TinyLife

 

DSCF8871St Killian’s Year 14 students this week presented £500.00 to the local charity TinyLife. The final year students raised the money through various school-based events during the year, including the special ‘Mac League’ soccer tournament.

TinyLife started out in 1988 as NIMBA (Northern Ireland Mother & Baby Appeal), the only premature and vulnerable baby charity in Northern Ireland. The charity was established by healthcare professionals and concerned parents in the Belfast area in response to the growing number of babies requiring special or intensive care at birth. The key aim of the charity is to help reduce the number of premature and sick babies born in Northern Ireland and to support families who have experienced the birth of a premature, ill or disabled baby or babies.
