Tesco Ireland stores across the country raised a fangtastic €102,000 as part of Trick or Treat for Temple Street. In all 149 stores, Tesco colleagues dressed up in a variety of costumes while they hosted Halloween parties at the front of each store with cake sales, face-painting, balloons and much more.
All funds raised by Tesco stores will go towards purchasing eight new Patient Monitors located in several critical care units across the hospital. These new monitors will support the amazing staff of Temple Street to deliver the best possible care to little patients and allow patient data to move with them if they need to be transferred.
Christine Heffernan Corporate Affairs Director Tesco Ireland said: “We are really proud to have supported Trick or Treat for Temple Street and are amazed by the level of support from our colleagues and customers alike. It really shows what can be achieved when people pull together for a great cause. What a fantastic result for by Temple Street.”
Denise Fitzgerald, CEO of Temple Street Fundraising said: “Temple Street has some of the best doctors and nurses in the world but without specialist facilities and equipment it is simply not enough. The effort put in by Tesco colleagues across the country was amazing and will really make a difference. All their hard work will help us purchase vital new patient monitors. On behalf of all the patients in Temple Street I would like to say a huge thank the customers and Tesco colleagues who helped make the event such a huge success.”
