Tesco Ireland stores surpassed its €100,000 target and has raised €128,388 for Temple Street Children's Hospital, with its recent Trick or Treat fundraiser.
Over the bank holiday weekend, all 151 stores across the country, Tesco colleagues dressed up in a variety of costumes while they hosted Halloween parties with cake sales, face-painting, balloons and much more.
“We are extremely proud of the incredible support shown by both colleagues and customers at this year’s Trick or Treat for Temple Street events," Geraldine Casey, Director, Tesco commented.
"It’s amazing to see what is possible when people work together for such an important cause."
"We are quite simply blown away by the phenomenal funds that our wonderful friends in Tesco have raised over the October bank holiday weekend at their Trick or Treat for Temple Street parties in-stores," Denise Fitzgerald, Chief Executive, Temple Street Foundation said.
All of these vital funds raised will go toward purchasing new paediatric scopes; life-saving equipment needed for Temple Street to ensure that each child receives the best care possible.
“The kindness, enthusiasm and love shown by Tesco colleagues and customers alike is so inspiring to us here in the hospital, “ Fitzgerald added.
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.
