The island’s twins, triplets and other multiple births have been invited to join a fundraising event.

The sponsored twin toddle, walk, ride and push along Douglas Promenade will take place on Sunday, August 31, starting at the Bottleneck car park cafe at 2pm.

Event organiser Kerry O’Hare said: ‘We are hoping to attract twins, triplets and any other multiples of all ages for this fundraising walk, and see just how many twins the island has. Farmhill Lane has five sets of twins living on it, is there anywhere with more?’

The event is part of a fundraising campaign by the Isle of Man twin mums support facebook group, affiliated with the Twins and Multiple Births Association, to purchase a second specialist twin cot for Noble’s Hospital.

One cot has already been bought with funds raised by the group and the Oskar’s Dreams charity. It will be presented to the Special Care Baby Unit later this month.

The second cot will be donated to the main maternity ward for twins who do not require specialist baby care, but can be kept together.

For further information and sponsorship forms contact Kerry O’Hare or 469299.
