Tesco To Host Festive Fun Days To Raise Vital Funds For Temple Street

Tesco is also selling limited edition flower Bouquets in aid of Temple Street Children's Hospital.

Christmas can be a difficult time for a lot of families. While many people enjoy the fun and festivities, different circumstances can mean that Christmas is a tougher time for some people than most.

This is especially true for families who will be spending Christmas in Temple Street. Away from home and in a hospital ward, Christmas can lack the usual fun and magic.

Each year Temple Street treats over 150,000 children from across the country and for thousands of children, Temple Street is the only hospital in Ireland in which they can be treated.

This year, Temple Street was decorated and filled with Christmas cheer by the wonderful people at Tesco, as seen in the video below.

On the 6th and 7th of December, Tesco are inviting their customers in-store for Festive Fun Days where there will be a selection of festive fun including a Christmassy cake sale, fun face painters, and limited edition festive floral bouquets, all in aid of raising much-needed funds for sick children this Christmas.

This year’s series of ‘Festive Fun Days’ aim to raise €150,000 for the children of Temple Street, with all of the vital funds raised going toward purchasing an advanced Retinal Camera for the Theatre ward, needed for Temple Street to ensure that each child receives the best care possible.

Using this new equipment, an Ophthalmologist can ensure timely intervention, which can prevent loss of sight and in the case of Retinal cancer, can cure many cases.

Tesco will also be selling limited edition flower bouquets which you can buy for €10. For every bouquet sold, €1 will be donated to Temple Street.

Temple Street has been Tesco Ireland’s charity partner since October 2014 and to-date Tesco Ireland has raised €4.7 million in aid of the little heroes of Temple Street.
