Rotary and Local Charities/ Rotary Supports Lagan's Foundation
Community Chairman, Keith Maher, was able to hand over a Cheque for Â£400 to the Lagans Foundation Founder Carren Bell.
The foundation provides Volunteer help to mothers who have given birth to babies with Congenital Heart defects.
These babies are very difficult to bring up and need 24 hour care. Most of these babies have multiple defects and many cannot feed normally and need stomach tubes to survive. Young mothers find the situation so difficult that they cannot cope, especially if they have other young children to bring up.
Carren herself gave birth to such a baby called Lagan, hence the formation of the charity Lagans Foundation.
Horwich Rotary was proud to give some assistance to this charity.
