Northern Ireland Chest Heart and Stroke’s youngest ambassador, 5 year old Joe Degnan from Larne, is encouraging families across Northern Ireland to visit their local MACE store to purchase a sachet of magical reindeer food. The magical sachet will help guide Santa and his reindeer to your home this Christmas Eve. Like over 200 babies in Northern Ireland each year, Joe was born with congenital heart disease, having his first operation when he was just six days old. In March of this year the courageous little boy had another major operation on his heart. Purchasing a sachet of reindeer food will help NICHS support local families like Joe’s this Christmas. Purchase your reindeer food in any participating MACE stores.
