Tesco Staff raise €112,000 from their annual Great Irish Bake event

A huge thank you to Tesco staff and their customers from all over Ireland who supported and took part in their annual Great Irish Bake fundraiser for Temple Street.

On Friday, 20th April, Tesco staff came together to host their Great Irish Bake events in stores throughout Ireland raising an amazing €112,000 in just one day. The funds raised will help Temple Street purchase specialised Speech and Language equipment, which is used in the treatment of children with cleft palate.

Customers were invited to pop in-store and indulge in a sweet treat or two. All of which were prepared by the dedicated Tesco staff, as they raised vital funds for the little heroes of Temple Street.

Christine Heffernan, Corporate Affairs Director at Tesco Ireland, said, “It’s fantastic to see another successful year of the Great Irish Bake – raising vital funds for our charity partner Temple Street is so important to us. I would like to thank all Tesco colleagues and customers nationwide who remain committed to this cause year on year. After completing its fourth year, the Great Irish Bake for Temple Street is a fundraiser that can only get better and better.”
