Derry mum’s donation to Altnagelvin ante natal clinic

A Derry mum and teacher has donated more than £2,000 to Altnagelvin’s diabetes ante-natal clinic.

Michaela Doherty who is a teacher at St. Columb’s College raised the money for Altnagelvin’s Diabetic Ante Natal clinic in order to buy specialist blood sugar monitoring devices that sound an alarm when blood sugar levels are reaching a dangerous point.

Michaela found such a device monumentally helpful when managing blood sugars through her own pregnancy.

The figure was raised through a number of fundraising activities including participation in the Waterside half marathon, a school bake sale and pub quizzes.
