A KIND-HEARTED 12-year-old girl has used her pocket money to buy snacks and treats for Gardaí working on the frontline of Ireland’s response to the COVID-19 epidemic.
Irish police in Finglas received a wonderful gift in the post today: a box containing an assortment of chocolate bars, crisps, biscuits and fizzy drinks along with a hand-written note.
The note and package came from a thoughtful 12-year-old by the name of Ciara.
Eager to show her appreciation for those working to address the coronavirus pandemic, Ciara decided to use the money she had left over from her confirmation to say “thank you”.
“Hello, my name is Ciara and I recently made my confirmation,” the letter reads.
“I had an idea to use some of my money to give back to the frontline services around my area.”
“So I bought some goodies and drinks to help.”
“Stay safe always”
“Ciara, age 12”

A wonderful treat for the brave and dedicated officers on duty, Ciara’s efforts are just one of the many stories coming out of Ireland of people showing their appreciation for the nation’s frontline services.
With Ireland under lockdown for at least two more weeks, anyone wanting to show their appreciation for the Gardai and anyone else working through the pandemic can do so by following the government guidelines and remaining at home.
