Temple Street thanks bakers
BAKERS in Wicklow rose to the occasion last April, as they raised a total of €5,023 at this year’s Great Irish Bake for Temple Street. People from all over the county took to their kitchens for this great cause, which was sponsored by Gem.
Bake sales were held in homes, schools and businesses with a total of €226,152 raised nationwide. The money will help buy vital, life-saving equipment for the hospital’s wards, departments, theatres and ICU.
Chief Executive of Temple Street Foundation, Denise Fitzgerald, said, ‘Once again this year, we were overwhelmed by the enthusiasm of our Great Irish Bakers who baked, whipped and iced up a storm to raise vital funds for our little patients and their families. You are truly part of the extraordinary circle of care that surrounds each sick child who comes to Temple Street in need of urgent, world-class paediatric care. Thank you so much for your kindness and your support to our little patients.’
