For the second year running Grovelands Childcare and Harvest Café will be busy baking delicious goodies as part of the national Great Irish Bake in aid of Temple Street Children’s hospital.
People can donate to the cause by stopping by Harvest Café in the Athlone Town centre on Friday, April 15, between 3pm and 5pm where Grovelands Childcare children and staff will be selling delicious cupcakes. All proceeds will go directly to Temple Street children’s hospital.
A coffee morning and bake sale will also take place in each Grovelands Childcare centre on the same morning to raise funds for the children’s hospital. Parents are invited to bring along spare change on the day if they wish to make a donation.
Deirdre Bushell, marketing manager at Grovelands Childcare, said: “Temple Street’s Great Irish Bake presents the chance for everyone to don an apron and get baking to raise vital funds for the children’s hospital. We hope that as many people as possible will support the campaign by sampling the baked treats on Friday and donating to this really important cause. It’s also a wonderful chance for our children to learn about community spirit.”
Wanda Fitzpatrick, café manager at Harvest Café, said: “We’re delighted to support the Great Irish Bake in conjunction with Grovelands Childcare. Temple Street is such a worthy cause and we’re looking forward to raising some much-needed dough!”
