Spooktacular Tesco charity
THE Tesco store in Drogheda raised a fangtastic €2,955 as part of Trick or Treat for Temple Street over the bank holiday weekend. In all 151 stores across Ireland, Tesco colleagues dressed up in a variety of costumes while they hosted Halloween parties at the front of each store with cake sales, face-painting, balloons and much more.
All funds raised by Tesco stores will purchase a new Ultrasound machine for Neurosurgery which will be used during neurosurgical procedures to get real-time views of the brain anatomy and thereby facilitating the removal of brain tumours and accurate placement of devices and shunts.
“We are really proud to have supported Trick or Treat for Temple Street and are amazed by the level of support from our colleagues and customers alike,” said Aoife Donohoe, Head of Corporate Affairs, Tesco Ireland.
“It really shows what can be achieved when people pull together for a great cause.” Temple Street has been Tesco Ireland’s charity partner since October 2014 and to date Tesco Ireland has raised €3.6m in aid of the little heroes of Temple Street.
“We are tremendously grateful to everyone who got involved in the Halloween fun in support of our patients and their families,” added Denise Fitzgerald, Chief Executive, Temple Street Foundation
