Longford gets ready to crumble for Temple Street's 'Great Irish Bake'

Great Irish Bake Ambassador Mairead Ronan joined little Temple Street bakers Darcie Belle Kelly (6) and Daniel Dunne (8) to launch the 2018 Great Irish Bake for Temple Street

Broadcaster Mairead Ronan joined our little bakers this week to celebrate the launch of this year's Great Irish Bake for Temple Street, taking place on Friday, April 20.

Last year, bakers in county Longford raised a wonderful €1,300 at their Great Irish Bake sales and we're asking you to get on board once again this spring! This delicious campaign kneads everyone - at home, at work or in school - to get baking and help raise vital funds for Temple Street.

As this year's Ambassador, Mairead joined some Temple Street tots to officially kick off the campaign and inspire people all over Ireland to host a tasty fundraising bake sale in their local community or workplace. 

Simply whip up a few buns, cakes, pies or desserts and invite your friends, neighbours, colleagues and loved ones to buy for goodness bake! You can organise whatever kind of bake sale whets your appetite - small or elaborate - it's a piece of cake! 

Every minute of every day, sick children arrive at Temple Street to be treated by our doctors and nurses. The funds raised at this year's Great Irish Bake will fund the crucial equipment that helps heal our little patients and bring hope to worried families.
