Karen Koster launches #GreatIrishBake!

Broadcaster Karen Koster joined our little Temple Street bakers today to celebrate the launch of this year’s Great Irish Bake for Temple Street, proudly supported by Gem, taking place this year on 5th April!

Are you a flan of baking? If so, set your timer, roll up your sleeves and host your own Great Irish Bake sale to help raise vital funds for sick kids in Temple Street.

As this year’s Ambassador, Karen Koster joined some little Temple Street patients this morning to kick off the campaign and inspire the nation to do something really sweet for sick children and their families.

Getting involved is a ‘piece of cake’ – simply whip up some buns, cakes, pies or breads and invite your friends, family, neighbours or colleagues along to enjoy the goodies and help support a worthy cause. Whether you bake it or fake it, you can organise whatever kind of bake sale you like. Small or elaborate – it’s up to you!

Sick children need great care right now – because today, and every day, in Temple Street, children are arriving in need of urgent need of medical care in world-class facilities. The funds raised at your Great Irish Bake will go towards buying vital, life-saving equipment where it is needed most.

Great Irish Bake Ambassador Karen Koster says, “I am delighted to get on board as this year’s Great Irish Bake for Temple Street Ambassador! This campaign is a wonderful opportunity to have some fun with friends, family or colleagues and do something really special for sick children in Temple Street. Donut be shy – why not host your own Great Irish Bake for Temple Street this April!”

Denise Fitzgerald, Chief Executive of Temple Street Foundation says, “Every day in Temple Street, sick children depend on our world-class medical teams to provide them with urgent care. And every day, our doctors and nurses depend on our amazing supporters to help raise the vital funds that will buy life-saving paediatric equipment.  We are delighted to be partnering with Gem, who are kindly supporting this year’s Great Irish Bake for Temple Street.”

She adds, “Our huge thanks to our amazing Ambassador Karen Koster for getting on board this year to help us spread the world and get the entire country inspired to get their aprons on for Temple Street””
