Bum­bleance pays a visit to Naul Na­tional School

Fingal Independent - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

PUPILS from Naul Na­tional School got the check to check out the Bum­be­lance, the coun­try’s and the world’s first in­ter­ac­tive am­bu­lance for chil­dren.

Third and fourth class pupiles got to see the in­side of the Bum­bleance when it ar­rived down to the school re­cently.

Bum­be­lance is specif­i­cally de­signed for and tai­lored to chil­dren.

It en­sures the safe trans­porta­tion of sick chil­dren be­tween their home and pae­di­atric hos­pi­tals, hos­pices, na­tional treat­ment cen­tres and respite cen­tres na­tion­wide. They also pro­vide a unique and vi­tal ser­vice through their An­gel Trips, the fi­nal jour­ney a child takes on earth be­fore he or she grows their An­gel Wings. Bum­be­lance was cre­ated by Tony and Mary Heffernan, who lost their chil­dren to Bat­tens Dis­ease, a rare and fa­tal ge­netic dis­or­der of the brain.

They saw the need for this crit­i­cal ser­vice to en­sure that no other fam­ily would have to deal with the hard­ships of trans­port­ing sick, crit­i­cally ill and chil­dren with life lim­it­ing and threat­en­ing con­di­tions.
