This Halloween we’ll be hosting Trick or Treat for Temple Street events across the Bank Holiday weekend to help buy life-saving equipment.
Taking place in all 149 stores across the 27th – 29th October, we will be hosting Halloween parties with cake sales, face-painting, balloons and much more in aid of our charity partner, Temple Street Children’s Hospital. All funds raised will go towards replacing eight 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 the patient if they need to be transferred. Find out more about the equipment here.
Temple Street has been Tesco Ireland’s charity partner since October 2014 and to date Tesco Ireland has raised €2.9million in aid of the little heroes of Temple Street.
Each year Temple Street Children’s University Hospital treats over 145,000 children from across the country and operates the busiest A&E department in Europe. For thousands of children, Temple Street is the only hospital in Ireland in which they can be treated. Through the charity partner programme, Tesco colleagues and customers can help little people from all over Ireland get better and be real life heroes to children attending the hospital.
Tesco has set a national fundraising target of €100,000 to help buy new life-saving equipment for its charity partner, Temple Street Children’s Hospital.
