Congratulations to all our entrants and winners of the Breathe life into Christmas image competition. We were very excited by the entrants and it was a difficult job to choose the 6 finalists.
The finalists were displayed at the Irish Thoracic Society’s Annual Conference in November and the winner was chosen by Healthcare Professionals attending the conference.
The winners have all nominated their local COPD Support Group to receive the prize.
Our Winner Letitia Swardt from Clondalkin requested that the prize money of €1000 be used to support the emergence of a new group in the Clondalkin area. We will be supporting the emergence of a group in the new Year. Her entry is a hand drawn winter scene of an angel breathing life into a Christmas village.
Runner up is the Bray COPD Support Group who have won €800 for their local Bray group.
There were 4 joint 3rd prizes each getting €500 for their local COPD group.
Michael Drohan – Waterford COPD Support Group
Cindy Hayes – Bray COPD Support Group
Ann Murphy – Ballyfermot COPD Support Group
Christopher Confrey – Donegal to support the emergence of a group in Donegal.
Congratulations to everyone who entered and to those who won a prize.
A big thank you to our sponsor Novartis for making this event a reality.
