Temple Street Foundation has launched its annual ‘Trick or Treat for Temple Street’ campaign, proudly supported by MiWadi. A fangtastic Halloween party was held in the beloved children’s hospital where a gaggle of tiny dinosaurs, monsters and superheroes gathered to kick off the Halloween fundraiser. Temple Street is encouraging people all over the country – kids, adults, schools and workplaces – to host their own Halloween party and raise vital funds. And make no ‘bones’ about it: the money raised from this year’s Trick or Treat for Temple Street, will have a hugely positive impact on the children’s hospital. The funds raised will help to upgrade and replace specialised equipment from cardiac monitors to incubators and much more besides.
