Supermarket Donates 10,500 Nappies To Limerick Quadruplets

Alison Bough

Remember Lisa Fenton and her partner Wayne Downey, who got an extra-special delivery from the stork back in November?

Lisa and Wayne, from Caherconlish, made history when they welcomed quadruplets Alexander, Ashley, Maxwell, and Kayla into the world at University Maternity Hospital, Limerick. The babies were the first set of quads born in Limerick for half a century.

The (very) busy parents told the Independent that they change an average of 1,120 nappies a month. So, a recent donation of 10,500 nappies from Lidl was gratefully welcomed according to Lisa,

“We are absolutely delighted. When the courier dropped them off, he kept on going out to the van and coming back with more and more.”

In total, the generous supermarket delivered 188 packs of their Toujours nappy range. With 56 nappies in a pack, Lisa and Wayne should save over one thousand euro.

Which will come in handy when their first shoe bills come in.
