Spook­tac­u­lar Tesco char­ity

Drogheda Independent - - NEWS -

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
