Tesco sponsors our 2016 Great Irish Bake

Sprinkle some magic for Temple Street Children’s Hospital by taking part in the  #GreatIrishBake on 15th April

1827-0352Tesco has once again teamed up with Temple Street to support our annual baking fundraiser. They are encouraging the Irish public to take part in this year’s Great Irish Bake for Temple Street.

Do something extra sweet for sick children on Friday, 15th April by holding your own delicious fundraising bake sales at home, in school or at work.

Over the past eighteen months, Temple Street has been busy fundraising to build a new, much-needed Neurology and Renal Outpatients Unit. Funds raised from the Great Irish Bake will go directly to support this ambitious project.

Over the years, with the help of generous supporters, Temple Street has transformed from what was once a series of inner city houses into the state-of-the-art hospital it is today. But the work is not finished. With over 145,000 patient visits every year, Temple Street needs your support to help give hope to young patients and their families. Paediatric Neurology and Renal Dialysis & Transplantation are two of Temple Street’s major specialties; the expert care in these units is a life-line for children all over Ireland.

“We need €5 million to make our new Neurology & Renal Unit a reality and we’re over half-way there! The money you raise at your bake sale will help to get us over the finish line so that more than 6000 patients and their families can benefit from this new, comfortable and modern facility every year.”

Denise Fitzgerald, Chief Executive, Temple Street Foundation

“We’re really proud to be sponsoring the Great Irish Bake for the second year running. Last year the effort that Ireland’s bakers went to was amazing and we’re delighted to again back this fantastic fundraiser. Aside from the obvious appeal, these bake sales really do go a long way in helping the little patients at Temple Street and make a huge difference to the hospital’s fundraising efforts. As sponsor, we are going big to support this national fundraiser and will be holding one of Ireland’s largest bake sales in Tesco stores countrywide on Friday, 15th April. So please pop in and support on the day in any way you can, and of course indulge a little too!”
