Tesco helps Temple Street get festive

TescoTesco brought festive magic to the hospital this December, creating a magical Christmas wonderland within the hospital to surprise our little patients spending Christmas away from home this year.

Tesco colleagues turned the ground floor of the hospital into an Elf Yourself Workshop, a Merry Christmas Market and a Magical Movie Theatre. Run by Tesco Elves, the children and their parents were invited to make Christmas decorations, meet the elves and post their letters to Santa, taste some delicious Christmas fare and watch a festive film, creating an unforgettable Christmas experience.

Tesco stores also got into the festive spirit with colleagues taking on an epic Race to the North Pole on Friday 19th December. On bikes, rowers, steppers, cross trainers and running machines – the Race to the North Pole was on! 79 stores travelled 7,900km between them – that’s almost the actual distance from Ireland to the North Pole and back again and raised €40,000 in the process!
To top off a really magical December, Temple Street staff and patients played a starring role in Tesco’s Christmas TV ad which aired over Christmas and the New Year.
