Tesco raise dough in Limerick for sick children


Temple Street Kids Bake SaleTESCO is calling on customers across Limerick to support the Great Irish Bake in their local stores this Friday, April 17 and help raise much needed dough for Temple Street Children’s Hospital.

The Great Irish Bake, supported by Tesco, aims to raise funds as Temple Street embarks on one of its most ambitious projects yet — the construction of a new neurology and renal outpatients unit. Over 145,000 sick children from all over Ireland are treated in Temple Street hospital every year and the Great Irish Bake raises over €150,000 annually.

Given the unwavering passion for baking in Ireland, Tesco is now calling on customers across Limerick to put these skills to good use and raise some dough for Temple Street by holding their own bake sale in work or school. Alternatively, all seven Tesco stores across Limerick will be hosting bake sales in aid of the Temple Street Great Irish Bake this Friday between 12 noon and 6pm.

“The popularity in baking seems to be at an all-time high so why not make the most of these skills and most importantly, help the little patients at Temple Street,” said corporate affairs director for Tesco Ireland, Christine Heffernan.

“It’s a fantastic fundraiser, and we’re asking families, individuals and companies alike to get involved. For those non-bakers among us, we’ll be holding a bake sale in-store at all our Limerick stores on Friday, so there are plenty of ways to support this great cause,” she added.
