Mum-of-two and influencer Rosie Connolly has launched the Great Irish Bake, a fundraiser with the aim of raising vital funds for Temple Street Children's Hospital.
Rosie Connolly has never shied away from charity fundraising. Back in December, she made headlines by raising over €280k for Temple Street Children's Hospital with a simple Instagram competition.
Now, she is more involved than ever as an ambassador for Temple Street, and today, she has launched the Great Irish Bake - a fantastic fundraiser that will take place on the 3rd of April.
Each year, Temple Street Foundation holds the much-loved Great Irish Bake campaign, encouraging people around the country to host their own bake sale to raise some vital funding for Temple Street. These funds will help provide essential equipment that will have a real impact on children's lives.
Denise Fitzgerald, Chief Executive of Temple Street Foundation says,
“We are delighted to welcome Rosie as the Great Irish Bake Ambassador this year. Rosie has been a great friend to sick children in CHI at Temple Street, and we are looking forward to working with her on this exciting campaign.
Each year Temple Street cares for over 147,000 sick children in the hospital. Every donation we receive, no matter how big or small, goes towards providing essential equipment and supports for our little heroes and their families at Temple Street. Gem has been a kind supporter of the Great Irish Bake throughout 2019, and we are pleased to have them on board once again this year!”
Great Irish Bake Ambassador Rosie Connolly says,
“I was thrilled to be chosen as the Ambassador for this year’s Great Irish Bake. I had my own experience with Temple Street when my son broke his leg, and I have seen first hand how incredible the staff are. Hosting your own Great Irish bake is a great opportunity to have some fun with friends, family, and colleagues, whilst also doing something special for sick children in Temple Street.”
