An eggs-tra special delivery to Waterford’s frontline staff as they battle Covid-19

Local gardai made a eggs-tra special delivery to our frontline workers at University Hospital Waterford (UHW).

Community Policing Officer Sergeant David Butler presented UHW General Manager with a donation of Easter eggs for staff as they battle to treat patients during the Covid-19 emergency.

The eggs were the result of an Easter raffle organised by the students of St Angela’s secondary school in Waterford.

School Principal Bernadette McGlynn thanked the students for embracing the school’s motto – ‘Not for Self but for Others’ – which she said “is now more important than ever”.

Ms McGlynn added: “Our whole community is dealing with difficulties and challenges like never before.

“Our hard-working Parents School Advisory Committee were in the process of organising our annual Easter raffle to raise funds for our school when school closure was announced. We were delighted today to deliver all of the Easter eggs to University Hospital Waterford as a thank you for the wonderful work that they are doing. A big thank you to parents for donating so many Easter eggs.”

The school has also generously donated all of their science goggles to the Emergency Department at UHW.

Ms McGlynn said: “We hope that this will help staff in some small way. Best wishes to all from the students, parents and staff of St Angela’s secondary school in Waterford.”
