Make some cakes for sick kids’ sakes with the #GreatIrishBake on 7th April!
One of Ireland’s biggest baking events, The Great Irish Bake for Temple Street, will be taking place on the 7th of April. Since the inaugural event back in 2009, there have been more than 2,000 cake sales hosted nationwide, raising an incredible €500,000, used to help buy vital equipment for Temple Street’s theatres, wards, and the Intensive Care Unit.
Actress and writer Amy Huberman, in her role as Ambassador for the Great Irish Bake, joined forces with a team of pint-sized aspiring bakers to officially launch the event, and to inspire the nation to roll up their sleeves, and get involved in this incredibly worthwhile, and essential fund raising campaign.
Speaking at the launch, Amy said, “The Great Irish Bake for Temple Street is a really great way to help support some of Ireland’s sickest children. Your bake sale has the power to change the lives of so many children and their families. So why not give it a go this April – it’s as easy as pie!”
According to Denise Fitzgerald, CEO of The Temple Street Foundation, “This year, we urgently need to raise €230,000 to buy essential equipment for key areas of the hospital. The funds that our Great Irish Bakers raise during this important campaign will allow us to buy the specialised monitoring, surgical and care equipment that helps make sick children better. We really hope you enjoy being involved in The Great Irish Bake; you will be making an important and vital difference to our hospital and our patients.”
