Still time for Longford folk to get their 'Trick or Treat for Temple Street' party pack

Trick or Treat Ambassador Miriam O'Callaghan.

Trick or Treat Ambassador Miriam O'Callaghan is asking everyone in County Longford to host their own spooktacular Halloween party to help sick children in Temple Street.

Halloween may be just around the corner, but there is still time to sign up to 'Trick or Treat for Temple Street' and get your free party pack, proudly supported by MiWadi.

Money raised from ‘Trick or Treat for Temple Street’ will help the hospital buy critical Digital X-Ray equipment, which plays a crucial role. The high-spec machines will produce digital X-Rays much quicker, meaning larger numbers of children can be seen in one day, reducing stressful waiting times and the length of time children need to spend in radiology.

“Hosting a Halloween party for Trick or Treat for Temple Street is so simple - you and your children get to have fun and at the same time, raise money to help some amazing and brave young children. The hospital has a very special place in my heart and I am delighted to be an ambassador for Trick or Treat for Temple Street 2016,” says Miriam O'Callaghan, Trick or Treat Ambassador.

Niamh McArdle, Brand Manager MiWadi, with Britvic Ireland commented; “This is the fourth year MiWadi has proudly supported Trick or Treat for Temple Street and we are delighted to see it bigger and better than ever. Over the past three years MiWadi has helped raise just under €1m for Temple Streets Children’s Hospital and this year we want to continue this success and help raise €500K this October. This unique campaign reflects MiWadi’s vision of seeing the world through the eyes of a child and Halloween is a magical time for kids across the country.”

Denise Fitzgerald, Chief Executive of Temple Street Foundation says, “Trick or Treat for Temple Street is one of the highlights of our calendar – not only is it fantastic fun, but it helps raise much-needed funds for Temple Street. Over the years, the money raised through Trick or Treat for Temple Street has helped fund new equipment and build state-of-art new facilities.”

“She adds, “We are thrilled that MiWadi are on board again to support Trick or Treat and this year we are encouraging everyone to pick up their broomsticks, put on their witch’s hats and make a lasting difference to sick children’s lives.”
