If you were planning on hosting your own Great Irish Bake in about 3 weeks’ time, you’ll have to hold off for just a few more weeks.
“In light of the current situation regarding COVID-19, Children’s Health Foundation has made the decision to postpone the Great Irish Bake for Temple Street until Friday, 5th June,” Denise Fitzgerald, Chief Executive of Temple Street Foundation, said in a press release. “The safety and wellbeing of supporters and the wider public is of paramount importance to us and, given the increasing number of cases in Ireland, we feel that this is a necessary and appropriate course of action.”
The Great Irish Bake for Temple Street will now take place in the summer and members of the public can still register online or by phone to host their own baking event and help raise vital funds for sick children.
Each year Temple Street Foundation holds the campaign, encouraging people around the country to host their own bake sale to raise some much needed dough for Temple Street. These funds help provide essential equipment that have a real impact for the children in Temple Street.
“We would like to thank all of our supporters who have already registered to host their own bake sale and have worked so hard to raise vital funds to support sick children and their families in Temple Street,” Fitzgerald says. “We hope that you will join us for the Great Irish Bake this summer and host your own fundraising bake sales on or around Friday, 5th June. Your support is vital to ensuring that our little patients continue to have access to the very best care, when they need it most.”
