Partnership with Children's Health Foundation Temple Street

Baby Rio and his Mum Abbey

In October 2014, we chose Children's Health Foundation Temple Street as our new Charity Partner, following a selection process guided by Tesco colleagues nationwide.

Since then, over six years of the partnership, our colleagues have helped raise over €6.5 million for the hospital - making it one of the largest fundraising achievements in the private sector in Ireland.

The charity partnership sees the funds raised by Tesco colleagues, customers and Temple Street supporters used specifically to help Children's Health Foundation Temple Street to purchase life-saving medical equipment for its patients.

Throughout the course of the partnership to date, the funds raised have helped to buy over 330 pieces of vital equipment for patients, including ultrasound scanners, patient monitors and respiratory equipment.

Some highlights of our partnership so far include:

  • Tesco colleagues have spent 70,000 hours fundraising 

  • Over €6.5 million has been raised for Children's Health Foundation Temple Street in six years

  • €215,000 was raised in one week by Tesco colleagues through the Great Irish Bake in 2021 - making it the most successful single fundraising event in the six years of our partnership

  • Funds raised have helped to buy 330 pieces of vital equipment for patients
