Tem­ple Street thanks bak­ers

Wicklow People (West Edition) - - NEWS -

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.’
