An appeal is being made for volunteers who would like to help children who are sick in hospitals.
Children in Hospitals Ireland are looking for people to help organise play activities for sick children, from painting, helping with jigsaws or board games to simple arts & crafts.

"We looking for people who are over 18 years of age, who have a happy disposition, who enjoy children, who enjoy working with children, and who feel they can fulfill the role in facilitating play with sick children in hospitals".
"All our volunteers must be trained and Garda vetted", she added.
