An employee vote led to Tech Group Europe first supporting Temple Street in 2012. On a visit to the hospital, employees were shocked at the cost of medical equipment that is so vitally needed in the hospital and made a commitment to make a difference.
Tech Group employees have clocked up thousands of miles to make miracles happen in Temple Street. They have collectively cycled the equivalent of the distance from Malin Head to Mizen Head (500 km) 3 times, taken part in Temple Street events such as the Great Irish Bake & Women’s Mini Marathon, held a soccer tournament fundraiser and a comedy night!
Funds raised, lives saved
Over the last 2 years, Tech Group Europe have raised significant funds enabling the purchase of 3 new Comfortline Therapy dialysis chairs for the Haemodialysis Unit & better chairs for the parents and have now set their sights on raising enough funds to purchase 3 new dialysis machines.
“Through the ongoing annual fundraising initiatives by our company, this year we are delighted to again have chosen Temple Street Children’s Hospital as the recipient of these funds being raised through our campaign, to be held in May 2014. Through this employee initiative we believe we will continue to make a meaningful contribution to the great work that Temple Street Hospital do in providing first class care for thousands of sick children that attend the hospital every year and also in the on-going research that the hospital is involved in”
