Sheila Crowley, a 93-year-old lady from Cork, is celebrating winning a heart-warming gift of €1,000 towards her heating from Hidden Hearing. The mom of three was over the moon when she found out she was the recipient of the coveted prize.
A delighted Sheila and her daughter Mairead were presented with the cheque for Calor Gas by Jim Williamson at the Blackrock Hidden Hearing clinic.
Commenting on how she felt with her Gift of Heating prize Sheila Crowley said: “Brilliant! I don’t think we’ve won anything ever really, so it’s fantastic!”
Sheila added “It’s going to be our gas stock for three quarters of the year really, paid for, so it will really help long term.”
