Halloween is coming again, and Temple Street is calling on everyone in Dublin to host their own spooktacular ‘Trick or Treat for Temple Street’ party and raise vital funds to help sick children.

Broadcaster, model and mum, Glenda Gilson, helped get Temple Street into the Halloween spirit this week, as she launched the hospital’s annual ‘Trick or Treat for Temple Street’ 2019 campaign, supported by MiWadi.

Dubliners from individuals, community groups, schools, crèches and workplaces alike, are being encouraged to host their very own ‘spooktacular’ Halloween party, get the party ‘startled’ this October and help raise vital funds for sick children.

Life-saving

The funds raised during this ‘hair-raising’ campaign, will have a direct and positive impact for sick children in Children’s Health Ireland (CHI) at Temple Street, by funding vital, life-saving equipment for the hospital’s wards, theatres, departments and Intensive Care Unit.

Speaking at the launch, Glenda Gilson said: “As a new mum, Trick or Treat for Temple Street is a campaign very close to my own heart and I’m truly delighted to help spread the word about this fantastic campaign, which is once again supported by MiWadi.

“I encourage everyone to get involved by registering for a free party pack and hosting a Trick or Treat for Temple Street Halloween party, to help raise the vital funds for such a worthy cause.”
