Trine Jensen-Burke

Irish nationwide retailer Dunnes Stores has launched a clothing range for children with additional needs.

Upon sending her e-mail, Cullen was contacted directly by Dunnes Stores senior management, and was then kept informed all the way along the process of making the range.

The range is now available exclusively online at
