Temple Street’s charity partnership with Tesco is changing lives – Tesco Staff and customers raise an amazing €5million for Temple Street Children’s Hospital.
Temple Street is delighted to announce that Tesco staff and their customers have raised an amazing €5million in 5 years! Since the start of our partnership back in October 2014, the Temple Street and Tesco relationship has gone from strength to strength. The funds raised by Tesco staff and the customers have had a life changing impact on our patients, their families and our staff. It has enabled us to purchase life-saving equipment for our hospital. Equipment like patient monitors, respiratory equipment, patient trolleys and morphine pumps to name but a few. This equipment very simply means the difference between life and death for our patients.
Speaking about the partnership – Mona Baker, Site CEO, CHI at Temple Street said
“Being the Tesco Charity Partner has without a doubt, been an honour and a privilege here in CHI at Temple Street and for our Temple Street Foundation. We are absolutely overwhelmed with the €5million raised over the past five years and we cannot thank Tesco staff right across the country enough for the relentless work they have put in to make this happen.”
Each day the positive and powerful impact that Tesco has had on Temple Street can be seen throughout the hospital. Thanks to the hard work of their staff and customers, we have been able to provide the tools that enable our world renowned medical teams to provide our patients and families with the best possible care. This means the 147,000 children who pass through the doors of Temple Street each year will have access and benefit from this life-saving equipment.
