Need some advice on the top toys this Christmas? Well you are in luck, as a panel of little experts from Temple Street Children’s Hospital has been reviewing the season’s most wanted toys… and having some fun along the way! ‘The Temple Street Toy Review’ video, proudly brought to you by Tesco, aims to raise funds for Temple Street. The campaign is hoping to raise €100,000 to help purchase vital medical equipment that will treat some of the 145,000 little patients that attend the national hospital each year.
Emma Barrett, Temple Street Foundation said, “It was so wonderful to see the kids and their families have such a fun-filled day from start to finish, and to give them a break from the routine of the hospital. Each of their little personalities shone throughout the entire day and we’re so proud to be able to share this video in the hope that people will make a small donation to this great cause.”
Catriona O’Boyle, Digital Marketing Manager at Tesco Ireland said, “We had such a fantastic day filming with our little stars from Temple Street. We wanted to show the unwavering spirit of these children who attend the hospital over Christmas, and also give them a great day out! We hope that everyone who views the video will send one little text and donate €4, so that we can make a big difference to the lives of thousands of families.”
Tesco announced Temple Street as its Charity partner in October 2014 and to date has raised more than €1million for the children’s hospital.
