Here’s Why We Support Temple Street Children’s Hospital

More than half of emergency admissions at Temple Street Children’s Hospital are aged under six years old, requiring highly-specialised equipment only available at Temple Street.

Last year the Swim For A Mile swimmers raised an unprecedented €14,000 through event bookings, sharing our Temple Street iDonate Link, and donating to collections at our clinics and events.

By booking your 2020 Swim For A Mile Challenge event, you have already contributed to helping some of the 148,000 sick children admitted to Temple Street each year, as 10% of
that fee goes towards this incredible cause. But we’re hoping that you might do even more for the SFAM 2020 charity partner by clicking & sharing this iDonate Link or requesting one of our SFAM 2020 sponsorship cards.

Temple Street Children’s Hospital provides world-class medical care to babies and children from all over Ireland. The Temple Street Foundation need our help to fund the hospital’s vital lifesaving equipment, hospital redevelopments, research into specialist surgery,  rare disorders and crucial parent and patient services that make sick children’s lives that bit easier.

Your donations go a long way, it doesn’t take much to make a palpable contribution to Temple Street’s work;

  • €10 will buy a syringe, essential for administering pain relief to a sick child
  • €15 will go towards multi-sensory toys which are specially adapted to aid rehabilitation
  • €20 will buy four special neonatal masks – small enough to fit a newborn baby’s face
  • €50 will go towards the cost of an operating microscope.

For many parents, Temple Street Children’s Hospital, as Ireland’s leading National Children’s Hospital, is their child’s only hope. The excellent doctors and nurses make it a national centre of excellence for seven specialities – nowhere else in Ireland offers these
lifesaving treatments for children.

So while these doctors and nurses are doing everything they can, we’re proud to be doing what we can to help children and parents in need, and even prouder of you for booking a SFAM 2020 event to swim for their cause.
