Earlier this year long standing Children’s Health Foundation Ambassador, Rosie Connolly launched a limited-edition children’s half-zip collection from her hugely popular lifestyle brand, 4TH ARQ in aid of Children’s Health Foundation.

The limited-edition range sold out within days, in turn raising €100,000 for sick children in Children’s Health Ireland hospital and urgent care centres. Rosie then launched an incredible raffle on her Instagram page which raised a further €45,000 for Children’s Health Foundation! 

This phenomenal amount has helped fund some incredibly important projects including a new transport incubator and trolley and new state-of-the-art equipment for the Short Stay Outpatient’s Unit.

The influencer and mum of two has been an ambassador for Children’s Health Foundation supporting the life-saving work of Children’s Health Ireland hospitals and urgent care centres for many years.

In 2019 Rosie raised almost €300k when she gave her followers the chance to win a Gucci bag, she was also the face of the 2020 Great Irish Bake for Sick Children campaign.  

Speaking of the collaboration, Rosie said “We are so thrilled with the support that was shown for our 4TH ARQ and Children’s Health Foundation campaign. Selling out of the exclusive Kids Half-Zip meant we could donate a substantial amount of money to a cause so close to our hearts and the hearts of so many families in Ireland. Having our gorgeous, brave models partake in the photoshoot was the icing on the cake and such a special moment for us all.”

Hugh Kane, Interim Chief Executive at Children’s Health Foundation said, “Rosie has been a longstanding friend and supporter of Children’s Health Foundation for many years. This collaboration was a huge success and raised an incredible amount to help sick children in Children’s Health Ireland hospitals and urgent care centres. We are so grateful to Rosie and Paul for their ongoing support and hugely thankful to the whole 4TH ARQ team for the work they put into making this such a success.”
