    Donal Skehan Great Irish Bake Off CHI Temple Street Crumlin Easy Food

    On Friday, May 21st, the Great Irish Bake will once again raise vital funds for sick children in both CHI at Crumlin and Temple Street! Children’s Health Foundation Ambassador Donal Skehan was joined virtually by CHI patients Adam King and Saoirse Ruane to celebrate the launch of this year’s Great Irish Bake for Crumlin and Temple Street taking place on 21st May, proudly supported by Gem.

    For many years, the Great Irish Bake has raised much-needed dough for sick children in CHl at Temple Street. This year, for the first time, the campaign will be raising funds to support sick children in CHI at both Temple Street and Crumlin, helping even more children across Ireland to get the care they need.

    Funds raised will support the vital and life-saving equipment fund for CHI, ensuring that the hospitals continue to have state-of-the-art equipment for operations, pain and fluid pumps that provide medication and comfort during a child’s hospital stay, lab equipment that provide fast test results and diagnoses, multi-sensory equipment that creates a warm, engaging and child-centred environment and so much more.

    Even though it may not be possible to meet in person yet, there are still many fun and creative ways to help. Invite friends and family to join a virtual bake off, host a baking tutorial on Zoom, and/or organise a sugarcraft competition on Instagram. The more people involved, the more fun it will be and the more funds raised to support sick children in CHI at Crumlin and Temple Street.

    Register to receive a Great Irish Baking kit jam-packed with everything you need to make sure your bake off is a huge success, including an inspirational Recipe Book filled with hand-picked yummy recipes from some of CHI’s patients.

    Great Irish Bake Ambassador Donal Skehan says, “I was delighted to be invited to be part of this exciting campaign as the Great Irish Bake for Crumlin and Temple Street Ambassador. It is a unique opportunity for people who love baking all around Ireland to get involved, get their aprons on and raise some vital funds for sick children in CHI at Crumlin and Temple Street. There are so many ways to get involved and this year, the team in Children’s Health Foundation have come up with a whole host of ingenious virtual activities that you can do from home, while also getting friends, families, your local community or co-workers involved! Please sign up, host your own Great Irish Bake for Crumlin and Temple Street activity and help make a real difference to sick children who need it most.”
