Tesco Ireland has raised €5 million over the course of its five-year partnership with CHI at Temple Street.
Throughout the course of this partnership, the funds raised have helped the hospital to buy over 270 pieces of vital medical equipment for patients including ultrasound scanners, patient monitors and respiratory equipment.
Tesco Ireland first chose Temple Street as its Charity Partner in 2014 following a selection process guided by Tesco colleagues nationwide and since then has grown to become one of the largest fundraising achievements in the private sector in Ireland, the retailer said.
“Over the past five years, the Tesco Ireland Charity Partner Programme has inspired and motived our colleagues and customers to pool our strengths and passion in support of a cause that is close to all of our hearts, said Kari Daniels, chief executive, Tesco Ireland.
Tesco is also announcing a further extension to its partnership for one-year for 2020 and continuing with its ambition of purchasing much-needed equipment to aid the treatment of sick children with the aim of raising an additional €1 million.
Daniels added: " "We have big plans for our work with the hospital for 2020 and look forward to bringing those to life this year.”
